If like us, you love a good sauce to accompany your main dish but aren’t confident enough to make a hollandaise or bernaise, fear not. By the time you’ve watched this short film and mastered this simple sauce for the ages, you’ll never look back.
Pretty much every nation’s cuisine has its own version of a ‘green sauce’. We’ve chosen the Italian one for no better reason that that it’s Andrei’s favourite! “I have it with everything,” he says. Most commonly, it’s served with fish, but we reckon you’ll love the simplicity and umami flavours so much you’ll be dishing it up with steaks too – as Andrei does.
The easy-to-follow recipe in the film includes capers, anchovies, basil, parsley and olive oil, but do feel free to add or substitute other herbs and even a chilli if you fancy.
So, ingredients at the ready and watch the film.
Once you’ve mastered the sauce, why not try making some fishcakes as the perfect partner.
2.5g capers, rinsed
75ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Discard the herb stalks and roughly
chop the leaves.

adding the oil until smooth.
