Ingredients seaweed butter

250 g of butter

Put all the ingredients in the food processor and allow the butter mixture to stir until everything is mixed well. Roll the butter into a log and put it in the refrigerator to stiffen. Cut it into slices. Put the slices in ice water for a moment prior to serving.

Reduce the temperature to 200 °C and bake the bread for 50 minutes to a light brown. Take the bread out of the oven and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
