    BecR's Note:

    In France, green garlic butter is traditionally served with snails-escargots. This version with Pastis is also particularly delicious and fragrant drizzled over scallops or mussels (see my Moules Farcies Gratinees - French Mussels Moules Farcies Gratinees - French Mussels W/Green Garlic Butter #299761). Serve with plenty of fresh lemon wedges, slices of French bread for mopping the fragrant juices, and a crisp, chilled white wine such as Muscadet or Sancerre. Bon appetit! Williams-Sonoma.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a food processor, process the garlic until pureed, then add the parsley and process until finely minced mixture forms.
    2. 2
      Cut the butter into 3 or 4 pieces and add to the parsley mixture along with the green onions, tarragon, and pastis. Process until combined.
    3. 3
      Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and enough cream to create a soft, fluffy mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Spoon an equal amount of the green garlic butter on to each precooked and open mussel (see mussels Moules Farcies Gratinees - French Mussels W/Green Garlic Butter), sprinkle breadcrumbs generously on top. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, until butter is melted and fragrant, and the crumbs are crisp. Makes enough for 3 lbs. mussels. (Alternatively, you can transfer butter mixture to a small saucepan and heat through on medium to medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently and being careful not to burn, until butter is melted and fragrant. Drizzle over seafood of your choice).
    5. 5
      Serve with fresh lemon wedges, slices of French bread for mopping the juices, and a crisp, chilled white wine such as Muscadet, Sancerre or Sauvignon Blanc! Bon appetit!
