Lemon Hazelnut Pesto
This is a fabulous recipe. I am a sucker for anything with preserved lemons and when I found this one in an old RED magazine years ago I knew it was a dream come true. This pesto is just perfect for roast lamb or any red meat but it’s fabulous with fish too. It keeps for about 2 weeks in the fridge and even better you can make it for a quick dinner mid week with garlic mash or for a jazzy dinner party. Absolutely delicious it takes no time at all. What more do you want?
Hint: It’s very rich so you don’t need a lot for each serving
