On the back of his new series, there have been a lot of Jamie Oliver recipes in the paper lately.
When I spotted this recipe for a green chilli my tastebuds were tickled. A friend of mine made it first, and she said the flavour needed some boosting, so I went with her suggestions.
Instead of seasoning with salt, I used a beef gel stock cube. I used 2 of my hot serrano chillies. I chopped together the spring onions, mint and a big handful of coriander, mixed it with the lime juice, and stirred it in a couple of minutes from the end, in the spirit of a gremolata with osso bucco, to freshen up the flavour. I served it in tortillas with sour cream and guacamole. It was very good - and Jamie's American Road Trip isn't as cringe-inducing to watch as I was expecting - but it won't replace a red chilli in my heart.
