Have you ever heard of “pea glue” before? Well, you’ll want to keep reading to learn about this exciting discovery and the interesting story behind: Hayley’s Pea Glue!
My partner and I have been together for 15+ years and we have a long standing, date night tradition – Friday night fish and chips! I can count on one hand the amount of Friday night’s we haven’t done this, mainly because we’ve been out of the country and British fish and chips are the best, not to mention the homemade tartare sauce to go with it!
Since COVID hit we haven’t been able to frequently visit our local chippy, so we’ve started having supermarket bought, oven cooked fish and chips. Being a little bit on the dry side my partner wanted beans… I know, beans!? Anyway, I didn’t want beans so opted for peas, which brings me nicely onto making my own tartare sauce, aka: Hayley’s Pea Glue.
Homemade Tartare Sauce Recipe:
- Curly leaf parsley
- Lemon juice
- Ground pepper
- Sea salt
(All ingredients are measured to taste)
Step by step guide:
- Finely slice the gherkins, capers, shallots, curly leaf parsley and dill, but if you like it chunky then not so finely chopped.
- Place in a bowl with the lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix together.
- Add mayo, I usually add a small amount at a time until I get the consistency I want.
Taa-daa! That’s it, you’ve made your very own pea glue! Super easy to make, right?
It wasn’t long before my partner wanted peas and pea glue too – testament to how good it is! I make this fortnightly as one batch lasts a week. Eat the first portion fresh, and the next portion is a little more flavoursome as its had time to develop in the fridge.
Just dollop a spoonful on your plate with your fish, chips and peas, then thoroughly enjoy!
(Cover any leftovers and they will keep for 7 days if refrigerated)
So, that was the story behind “Hayley’s Pea Glue” and the recipe for it too.
