1 cup frozen peas
2 large handfuls spinach leaves, washed
finely grated zest and juice 1 large lime
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 spring onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fish sauce
½ teaspoon sesame oil
¼ - ½ teaspoon harissa
¼ cup chopped coriander
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
coriander and lemon zest
Put the peas and spinach in separate heatproof bowls and pour over enough boiling water to cover. Leave both for 5 minutes then drain and refresh in cold water. Drain again then place the spinach in a clean tea towel and squeeze out the excess water.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined but still with a little texture.
To serve: Transfer to a serving dish and top with coriander and lemon zest. Makes about 2 cups
Pantry note: Harissa [har-ritha] is a fiery hot sauce from North Africa, made from chilli, garlic, cumin, coriander and caraway, but any good quality chilli paste can be used.
