  • Place garlic, parsley, anchovies and capers in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, stopping to scrape the sides as needed.
  • Remove to a bowl. Add lemon juice and pepper, then slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified.
  • As an option, you can add lemon juice and pepper to the food processor once the parsley is finely chopped. With the motor running, slowly add oil until emulsified. Do not over process or the oil may turn bitter.
