Monkfish and bacon kebabs with minty peas and salsa verde
Step 1

Begin by making the salsa verde by whizzing either with a stick blender or small food processor the parsley, basil, capers, cornichons, lemon juice and anchovy to a rough paste. Add enough olive oil to form a loose sauce, whizzing until emulsified
