- Make sure your butter is thoroughly softened before trying to mix the ingredients together. It's about a thousand times easier to get everything combined if your butter is nice and soft.
- Because capers are naturally salty, you shouldn't need to season the compound butter with additional salt.
- If you don't plan to use the butter immediately, be sure to wrap it in plastic wrap in a cylinder shape and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for 3 months. This makes it easy to just cut off a round or two as you need it. Compound butter is a great make ahead option for bring an easy burst of flavor to your meals!
- Play around with your own flavor combinations! Some of my other favorite combinations are shallot and parsley, rosemary and roasted garlic or horseradish and chive. Really any combination of fresh herbs and aromatics is an option here.
