Recipe from Michael Muba from "Michael Mina's Luxurious Christmas Weekend" December 2005 issue. These are awesome with one kind of butter can you imagine three? These butters are also terrific served with fish, chicken or fish. Also, the can be made ahead of time up to 3 days in advance. These are baked in a bed of salt so they'll cook more evenly and come out moist & tender. They are served with three flavored butters scallion, mustard & horseradish -as a homey version of the exquisite tasting trios he prepare at his Eponymous Restaurant. These are so pretty and easy and delish! F&W Magazine.
