So you can get the real flavors of this decadent dish, you will need to use both butter and oil. However, you can change the butter for margarine and use sunflower or olive oil.
As for the seasoning, this dish is all about garlic, parsley, salt, black pepper, and lemon juice. You can use fresh or minced garlic, but in a pinch, garlic powder works too. If you don’t have parsley, try using rosemary, cilantro, or oregano. As for the salt and pepper, these are key, but you can shake things up by using more heat and adding red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper.

You can accompany this appetizer with some sour cream, onion dip, or caramelized onions. Serve it on its own, as a side dish, or as an appetizer for your next dinner party.
