Use of anchovy butter

To use anchovy butter as a spread take it out of the refrigerator early, so it can soften and develop its full aroma. Anchovy butter may also be used to mount sauces and soups. For this purpose it should be very cold. The cold butter is stirred into hot soup or sauce that does not boil anymore. Otherwise the fat in the butter forms grease drops on the liquid.
