Radishes with Whipped Butter, Anchovy, and Parsley

Recipe by: Adapted slightly from Chef Kidd
Yield: 4 servings

A fresh, crisp summer appetizer to enjoy outdoors! Apparently these tasty little bites are very French. If you don’t love anchovies, feel free to skip the fishies and use kosher salt instead. Enjoy!

1/4 pound Plugrá® European-Style Butter, unsalted, room temperature
2 organic watermelon radishes (I couldn’t find these and subbed 5 big regular radishes)
2 anchovy fillets, drained, sliced into very thin strips
2 sprigs Italian parsley, fresh, minced

Whip the Plugrá Butter with an electric mixer until light and airy. Transfer to a small pastry bag and reserve at room temperature. Scrub the radishes thoroughly to remove dirt and trim ends. Using a mandolin or sharp kitchen knife, thin-slice the radishes. Arrange the radish slices evenly on a serving plate. Pipe whipped butter in the center of each radish slice and garnish to taste with a slide of anchovy and parsley. Make sure to taste a few to get the right proportions — you don’t want the anchovy to be overpowering. I’d put more butter if I made these again — it’s so creamy and delicious with the peppery radishes.

    Sounds like you’ve had an amazing summer so far! Except for the whole ladybug in your nose 🙂 These radishes look delicious…one of my favorite restaurants serves radishes with whipped butter but you take it to a whole new level with the anchovies and parsley….yum!
