This spicy combo of the two is amazing on fish and chicken. Mmmm. Go for it! Yo can make it as a butter or drizzle it on warm - more like a sauce.


  • Butter (375g)
  • Shallots
  • Bacon (2 rashes)
  • Basil (2 tbsp)
  • Cayenne Pepper (1/2 tsp)
  • Garlic Paste (1 tsp)
  • Tomato Paste (2 tbsp)

Making Your Home Made Butter

Fry shallots and bacon in 1 tablespoon of butter for about 5 minutes. As it starts to cool add the butter, tomato paste, garlic, cayenne pepper and basil. Once cool, add to a blender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Form the butter into a roll in parchment paper or store in a small bowl. Put in the fridge for about half an hour so that it solidifies.

You can also keep it warm and drizzle it as a sauce.
