Enjoy your delicious and fragrant garlic butter!
Garlic butter is an incredibly versatile condiment that can be used to enhance the flavors of a wide variety of meat and seafood dishes.
From steaks to lobster, chicken to shrimp, this delicious spread adds a burst of rich, garlicky flavor to every bite.
However, it is important to know when to use garlic butter and when to avoid it. While it pairs well with most grilled meats and seafoods, it may not be the best choice for lighter, more delicate dishes.
For example, using garlic butter on a grilled fish filet may overpower the delicate flavor of the fish, whereas using it on a thick, juicy steak will only enhance its richness and juiciness.
So, whether you are grilling, roasting, or sautéing, consider using garlic butter as your secret weapon to take your dishes to the next level.
