Use this slightly spicy, flavored butter for grilled meats with a Latin flavor. Top meat right off the grill with a tablespoon or so. Make for day of use.

Tangy and delicicous! Used Cilantro and Lime Butter to baste shrimp skewers, added depth to the finished shrimp sticks-will make again!

I made this to go with Fajitas and my family loved it. I did add a little bit of Chili Powder and some chopped Garlic. It worked up quick and easy.

This went fantastic over grilled fish and chicken. I made a whole grilled chicken, rubbing this butter under the skin. Really perked up the flavor. I took someone's earlier suggestions of adding minced garlic and red pepper flakes to this too.
