  • Zest of a lemon and juice of 1/2
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
In This Recipe


  1. Preheat the broiler to 500°F. Bring the butter to room temperature to soften.
  2. Trim the roots from the green onions and remove the tops. Place the bottoms in a pan with a little olive oil and salt, and then broil them until the onions are charred on all sides, a few minutes to each. Remove from the oven and then let the onions cool completely.
  3. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until all ingredients are well incorporated. Check the seasoning to your taste and adjust as necessary.
