This seaweed tapenade recipe is a great alternative to a more traditional salsa verde. It's a little less sharp, but has more depth - you can add more or less lemon juice depending on what mood you're in. We use a variety of different seaweeds for both look and texture: sea spaghetti and irish moss for crunch, dulse for purple hues, and nori and sea lettuce for smoothness. Because the seaweed is stored dry, the tapenade is the perfect store-cupboard standby.
Serve with pan-roast cod, stirred through spaghetti, or even just heaped onto a slice of toast. Store any extra in a jar in the fridge.
