    Make the garlic butter: Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté until tender and lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to sauté for another minute, until fragrant. Remove the pot from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.

    Transfer the garlic butter to a sheet of plastic wrap. Fold the plastic wrap over the butter and twist one end to close. Shape the butter into a log, then twist the other end to seal tightly. Refrigerate until ready to use, up to 3 days.
