Mushrooms shine with no cooking in this appetiser. The lime juice pierces them with flavour and makes them tender.

  • 5 g Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • 4 T extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 400 g mixed mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 30 g borage microherbs
  • 100 g caperberries
  • 100 g green olives, pitted
  • Grana Padano, shaved, for serving
  • For the hazelnut salsa verde:
  • 30 g Italian parsley
  • 1 t anchovies, finely chopped
  • 10 g caperberries
  • 1 lemon
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1⁄3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 80 g hazelnuts

Cooking Instructions
