  1. To make kimchi butter, whiz butter, kimchi and kimchi juice in a food processor until combined. Place on a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a sausage shape, then wrap up tightly and chill until firm.

  5. Cook, with hood down, for 2 minutes or until skin is crisp, then transfer to the rack and smoke for 10-12 minutes until golden and cooked through. Serve topped with slices of kimchi butter, cucumber pickle and micro basil.
