Method

 
Roughly blend the olives, garlic, bokkoms and herbs in a food processor, using the ‘pulse’ function.
If you don’t have a food processor, use a sharp chef’s knife to finely chop all the ingredients.
Aim for a spreadable paste, without mashing it up too much.
Taste for salt (seems superfluous, but trust me - the olive bitterness can be overpowering sometimes), black pepper and lemon juice.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
