Butter Board

Butter Board

We do not deserve butter boards 🧈 This is my take on the trend and wow. Would 100% recommend for your next night entertaining.


  • 150g salted butter, at room temperature
  • 50g extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt flakes
  • 50g jamon or prosciutto
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • Fresh bread, to serve


  1. In olive oil, slowly cook chilli flakes and shallots with a big pinch of salt, until they go caramelised and jammy.
  2. Fry or roast your cured meat, allow to cool and then crush into small pieces.
  3. Spread butter on a board or plate of your choice.
  4. Spoon over caramelised shallot mix.
  5. Zest a lemon over the top.
  6. Sprinkle over salt flakes.
  7. Top with crushed prosciutto and parsley.

Hot tip: leftovers make a mean compound butter if you have a food processor on hand. Delicious on toast, with fresh bread or tossed through pasta.
