How to Make It
- Drain the anchovies. If using anchovies in oil, pat dry between layers of paper towels, and if in brine, rinse in cold water before patting dry.
- Chop the anchovies. Place in the bowl of a food processor, add the garlic, scallion, and a little oil, and purée to make a coarse paste. If you prefer, use a mortar and pestle.
- Trickle in the rest of the oil, a little at a time, with the motor running. Add the lemon juice and zest and purée until you have a coarse, thick purée.
- Adjust the seasoning with a little pepper and serve immediately. Any leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
