Try this sweet-and-peppery butter on broiled or grilled white fish, on grilled steak or chicken, on corn on the cob or boiled potatoes, or with boiled green beans or peas.

I would like this. But a better butter is using 1 stick of butter, and 8 oz softened cream cheese with a minced clove of garlic, with the basil, salt, and pepper. You could also swap out the basil for tarragon, thyme, or parsley.
