In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, instant yeast and 2 tsp salt. Add the melted unsalted butter. Gradually add the lukewarm water while stirring with a wooden spoon or your hands until a sticky dough forms. Cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size. Remove the dough and divide into 8 equal balls.


Preheat the grill to a medium-high heat.


Lightly grease a pan and place it on the grill.


Flatten the dough balls into circles approx. 1½cm thick. Place each circle on the pan and cook for 3 minutes per side until it is golden brown and cooked through.


Finely chop a handful of basil leaves. Zest the lemon. Crush the garlic. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, basil leaves, lemon zest, garlic and salt. Using a hand mixer or whisk, whip the ingredients together until well combined and fluffy. Transfer the whipped basil butter to a small serving bowl.


Spread a generous amount of whipped basil butter onto each bread.


Serve warm scattered with extra basil leaves.
