Sweat the shallots and garlic in a knob of the butter over a gentle heat (3-5 minutes) then add the curry paste and cook for a further minute.
Add the wine, mustard, pepper, cheese, cayenne and lemon juice, turning up the heat and stirring continously until reduced to a paste, set aside.
Blend all the other ingredients with the remaining butter by hand, but do not liquefy. Add the shallot mixture and blend together gently by hand.
Form into sausage shapes in cling film for freezing if required.
This recipe is adapted from one by Omar Captain, a dedicated all round foodie from Marlow in Berkshire, England. Omar has refined his recipe over a period of 2 years and now feels it is the definative cafe de paris butter. "The sauce is best with a good fillet steak but can be eaten with chicken" he says.
We enjoyed this butter served with fish aboard the Norwegian Star during an Alaskan cruise. After we told him how much we enjoyed this sauce the chef sent a copy of the recipe to our stateroom.
