Tasty twist

*For a super-fancy, extra-tasty version, substitute this ginger-scallion butter for regular butter. In a small bowl, beat 4 tablespoons of room-temperature butter with 2 scallions (thinly sliced or minced), 1 minced garlic clove and 1 heaping teaspoon of finely grated, peeled fresh ginger. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
