Whipped butters can be based on stocks, cooking liquids, vegetable purées, or infusions whipped into appropriate compound butters. A whipped butter for grilled chicken might consist of brown chicken stock reduced with shallots or garlic and finished with tarragon, tomato, sweet red pepper, or mustard butter. Whipped butters for fish can be based on court-bouillon, fish stock, or the fresh cooking liquid from the poached or braised fish. Red wine whipped butter for fish can be prepared using red wine fish sauce as a base and finished with herb butters, crustacean butters, or coral butters.
