Tartare sauce

R ecipe from Jamie Oliver’s 3o minute meals, tested on 21/6/2014


2-3 large pickled cucumbers – pickled without sugar
3 tsp baby capers in vinegar
1 handful parsley leaves with stalks
Pinch of salt
Juice of half to one lemon
zest of 1 lemon
Quality mayonnaise


Put all ingredients except for the mayonnaise into a small blender, and blitz on pulse until it forms a very coarse paste. It’s important not to overblend it otherwise the finished product won’t have the right texture. Once blitzed, check for taste – it should be pleasingly tangy. In a separate bowl mix the coarse paste with a roughly equal amount of mayonnaise, and stir together with a spoon. Check seasoning, and you’re done!

Good with fish, seafood, chicken… most things, really!

Born in New Zealand, now living in Australia. When I'm not travelling, that is... Though I have travelled quite a bit before, 2012 is the first time that I've taken a year off to roam the world. Spending this time with Kristen exploring some of this planet's finest sights has been the best decision I've ever made. Who knows what 2013 will bring?
