Fennel has such an interesting flavour and is also such a versatile herb.
The seeds, leaves, stems and flowers have a delightful aniseed taste which
Fennel is the ideal companion to fish and a variety of vegetables both being enhanced with a lick of flavoured butter.
At the time, our garden fennel was a little small to lose any of its leaves to our kitchen and we didn't like the idea of bits of fennel seed in our butter…
Holy Lama Naturals' Spice Drops to the rescue!

We adore the bright fresh flavour and aroma.
Our butter was liberally doused over some salmon and asparagus but it would work equally well with purple sprouting broccoli
or pak choi.
- 80g unsalted butter
- zest ½ lemon, grated
- pinch salt
- black pepper, freshly ground
- 1tbs lemon juice
- 8 drops Holy Lama Naturals Fennel Seed Spice Drops
Carefully melt the butter over a low heat.
Add the lemon zest, salt, black pepper and lemon juice and whisk to mix.
Add the Fennel Seed Spice Drops and whisk again.
