Radishes with Anchovy Butter

Enjoy these fiery beauties as the French do – an elegantly simple hors d’oeuvre. Fresh radish’s dunked in softened butter & sea salt. Pimp your butter by adding chopped garlic and anchovy paste for a deliciously addictive twist. The only secret here is to use the best quality ingredient – fresh radish’s that are picked in season, the best quality butter you can find and sea salt – I recommend Maldons.
