Remarks

As I mentioned in the introduction, many people add tomatoes, but this is not essential to the recipe and I really don't feel it improves on the basic defining flavours of the herbs and lemon.

If you'd like an even more distinctive flavour, add the lemon zest in stage 5.

Keeping:

1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
