Ingredients

Main

  • 1 handfuls sprigs flat leaf parsley
  • 1 small lemon, grated rind and juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp capers, rinsed
  • 60 ml olive oil
  • 0.5 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

Method

Put the parsley, lemon zest, garlic,and capers in a food processor and whiz until it's finely chopped. Add the lemon juice and olive oil, adding more oil if you want a softer-textured salsa.


Check the seasoning, it might not need salt as the capers can be quite salty. This salsa keep well for about a week when stored in the fridge. Try serving it with panfried fish, pasta or a grilled lamb chop.
