In a medium bowl, place 1 stick of softened butter. Using a fork, beat it for 1-2 minutes until fluffy.
½ cup butter (1 stick)
Add in all other ingredients and stir until well incorporated.
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 tablespoon chives
1 tablespoon fresh ginger
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Scrape butter onto a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper and roll into a log measuring 1 ½ inches in diameter.
Place in the refrigerator until firm, approximately 1 hour. Remove from the refrigerator and use desired amount on cooked fish, chicken, beef or vegetables.
Wrap the remaining butter log in plastic wrap and place in a sealed plastic bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Slice off desired amounts as needed. For easy slicing, dip a knife in warm water before cutting.
Tamari can be substituted for soy sauce to make a gluten-free option.
