1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 Tbs fresh oregano, chopped

In a food processor, place macadamias, nuts, breadcrumbs, butter, parsley oregano, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon zest. Process for 15 minutes until smooth and combined.

Transfer butter mixture onto a large sheet of parchment paper, place another sheet on to then using a rolling pin roll out until 2-3 mm thick. Once the butter mixture is rolled out, place in the fridge for 20 minutes until set.
