Learn how to make Browned Butter, a simple and delicious ingredient that's a staple in many restaurants, and for a good reason! From Seafood to cookies, this rich and nutty butter elevates so many dishes to the next level.
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
Heat a heavy saucepan over medium heat.
Add the butter and whisk until melted, stirring often.
Allow to continue to cook while whisking often until the butter starts to froth and bubble.
You’ll see specks of darker color forming at the bottom.
Once the butter is a golden brown color and you smell a nutty aroma, immediately remove from the heat and set aside.
Use in your favorite recipes to add depth of flavor.
Do not use too high a heat, you have more control over the butter on a nice medium heat.
Make sure to transfer your brown butter to a bowl quickly after it's browned and include the flecks for all that nutty flavor!
If your butter is slightly burnt you can strain out the flecks to avoid bitterness.
You can brown big batches of butter. It keeps for a while in the fridge, or you can freeze it in ice cube trays.
