This Cajun Honey Butter is something you never knew you needed in your life. It is honestly so good on anything- toast, baked salmon, grilled chicken, shrimp, roasted vegetables, corn on the cob... And it takes less than 10 minutes to whip up!
- Butter- It is best to use unsalted butter for this recipe as the Cajun seasoning contains salt. That way you can taste and add additional salt to suit your tastes if needed. That said, salted butter will work as well.
- Cajun Seasoning- I like to use this homemade seasoning which is quick to make! But if you have other Cajun seasoning on hand, that should work as well.
- Mix all of the ingredients together with a hand mixer until well combined and whipped.
Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months. Allow to come to room temperature before using so that it is easy to spread.
