Equipment

What to do

  • Remember to put a damp tea towel under your chopping board to stop it from slipping.

  • 1. Prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list.

  • 2. Place the salted capers in a small bowl and add some hot water. Set aside.

  • 3. Place the spring onions, herbs, rocket and cornichons in the other small bowl.

  • 4. Drain and rinse the capers in cool water, drain them and add them to the rest of the ingredients.

  • 5. Stir in the oil and adjust the seasoning by adding salt and pepper to taste.

  • 6. Add the lemon zest and juice to the sauce when you’re ready to serve, any earlier will dull the beautiful green colour.

  • 7. Any leftovers will taste great for a few days, so don’t throw them away, just store them in a jar in the refrigerator.
