Fresh and Tangy Lemon Butter: Perfect for Breakfast or Brunch

Fresh and Tangy Lemon Butter
Lemon butter is a delicious and versatile condiment that combines the rich creaminess of butter with the bright, tangy flavor of fresh lemon. It can be used as a spread or topping for a variety of dishes, from bread and scones to seafood and vegetables. Lemon butter is incredibly easy to make and adds a burst of flavor to any meal.

One of the most popular uses for lemon butter is as a topping for crepes. The light, delicate texture of crepes pairs perfectly with the rich, buttery flavor of lemon butter. Simply spread a thin layer of lemon butter over a warm crepe and enjoy!

Lemon butter also makes an excellent topping for fish. The acidity of the lemon juice helps to cut through the richness of the fish, while the butter adds a creamy texture and depth of flavor. Simply melt a dollop of lemon butter over a piece of grilled or baked fish and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors. With its versatility and delicious taste, lemon butter is a must-have in any kitchen.
