Author Notes: Butter adds a bit of richness to this otherwise simple dish. Browning the butter takes it a step further to add a nutty note, enlivened on the other end by the mint. - liahuberliahuber

Food52 Review: These are radishes coddled so all their sweetness comes out. Exposing much of their surface area to brown butter gives them a pretty caramel color and delicate flavor, which the mint subtly accents. To get beautiful browning but retain some crunch, we cut the radishes into wedges slightly wider than 1/2 an inch and were careful not to crowd the sauté pan, and were rewarded with these golden, perfectly al dente beauties. Be sure to sprinkle on the mint just before serving -- it darkens quickly when exposed to heat. - A&MThe Editors

Serves 4

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound radishes, trimmed and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons mint, roughly chopped
  1. Heat oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Let butter melt and then cook a bit longer, until it’s a deep golden and beginning to take on a nutty smell, about 2 minutes total.
  2. Add radishes to pan and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 minutes, tossing frequently, until radishes are tender and tinged with caramelization in places. Let cool slightly and sprinkle with mint and additional salt to taste.
