AWF 2017 WINNER
This year's winner was Jackie Fletcher from Herefordshire for her BarbieBerro Sauce. When entering the competition, Jackie emailed us with the following message.
My special recipe is for a wonderful green Watercress sauce which I first made up for a tapas/BBQ to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We now eat it regularly as it goes with everything: poultry, meats, fish and even shellfish so I don’t have to make lots of different sauces and everyone loves it. It’s easy to make and good for you!
So here is the recipe:-
BARBIEBERRO SAUCE (so called because the Spanish for watercress is BERRO and I confess we were all a bit tiddly at the Tapas, see picture below…...)
50g watercress, finely chopped
1 banana shallot, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
juice of half a lemon
half a teaspoon of anchovy paste
pinch of hot pepper like cayenne
a few twists of ground black pepper
Mix everything together really well and serve.
Enough for a spoonful each for 4 people but easy to double up.
