From the book Low and Slow


Lamb has powerful flavours so, unlike some meats, it can take a belting sauce like this one and still hold its own. This recipe makes a large batch because anything smaller would be difficult in a blender. It's best used on the day it's made. 

Serves 10


150g peeled garlic
150g good-quality tinned brown anchovy fillets in oil
75g parsley (stalks and all)
3 small (or 2 large) lemons, juice
1 fresh red chilli, chopped
300ml vegetable oil
Maldon salt

Essential kit

You will need a blender or food processor.


1. Blanch the peeled garlic cloves three times: put them in a pan of cold water, bring to the boil and drain, then repeat. After the third blanching the garlic should be soft.

2. Tip the drained garlic into a blender or food processor and add the rest of the ingredients (the anchovy oil can go in too). Blitz to make a smooth, thick sauce. Chill before use. If the sauce splits a little, you can reblend.
