What Is Clarified Butter?

Clarified butter, also known as drawn butter, is butter that has been cooked down to remove water, leaving only butterfat to remain. It has a higher smoke point than regular butter which allows you to use it for cooking at higher temperatures. It also has a longer shelf-life than regular butter and does not contain salt.

What Is Clarified Butter Used for?

Clarified butter can be used for a number of different purposes. These include but are not limited to:

  • Seafood dishes: Cook seafood the right way with a rich clarified butter that will provide a beautiful browned color to shrimp, scallops, and salmon alike. You can also use melted drawn butter for dipping crab legs!
  • Vegetables: Vegetables can be elevated in flavor and texture by being tossed into a stir fry with clarified butter.
  • Meat: Clarified butter can be used to accentuate the rich meaty flavor of a well-cooked steak or enhance the fatty texture of a porkchop.
