Another recipe of Jamie Oliver’s, today I made this basil and lemon oil for the first time and will definitely be making it again.
It’s simply the below ingredients mixed with a hand blender, but would be just as good if the basil was chopped up very small, or all ingredients in a pestle and mortar:
– 8 tbs olive oil
– juice of 1 lemon
– a good handful of fresh basil
– salt & pepper
Extremely tasty when drizzled over mixed antipasti of mozzarella, tomatoes, cured meats, olives and a handful of mixed salad – great for summer days!
