Pan Roasted Radishes in Browned Butter - Caity


In Portland, there is a very wonderful street called N. Mississippi Avenue.  I used to live on that street and I loved every minute of it (except maybe the rent)! If you are ever in Portland, you must go there. It has several blocks of cool shops, bars and restaurants. One of my favorite restaurants is a newer one called "Radar". They serve a variety of small plates and fancy cocktails and this recipe is based on their Radishes in Browned Butter that I adore. 

Side note: those radishes are from our garden!!!

Serves 2

one year ago: Brazilian Lemonade
two years ago: Sicilian Carrots
three years ago: Garlic Grands

what you'll need:

1 bunch (20 or so) radishes 
1/2 to 1 Tbsp butter
chunky salt, such as Maldon Sea Salt, to taste

Begin by removing the radish leaves from the root. I like to leave a quarter inch or so of stems because they 1) look pretty and 2) get crunchy in the butter. Slice the radish in half, trying to slice the root in half as well. 


Slice the radish in half, trying to slice the root in half as well. I like to keep the root on again for the way it looks and the crunchiness. If you are opposed to the root or stem, remove them. 

Place the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Continue cooking the butter until it is very SLIGHTLY golden brown. The butter will continue to cook with the radishes and you don't want to overdo it. 


Add in the radishes and cook over medium-high heat, occasionally mixing to flip the radishes. Cook for 5 minutes until the radishes are evenly browned on both sides. 

Sprinkle on your chunky sea salt and serve the radishes warm.
