Pork & fennel sausages with a capsicum stew & an Italian salsa


  • To make the salsa, soak the bread with the milk for 5 mins. Then process with the parsley, anchovies, capers, quite a bit of ground pepper and the lemon juice.
  • Push everything down from the sides and add up to ½ cup oil, little by little, continually mixing until well incorporated. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Blanch the sausages in simmering water until firmish when squeezed. Then drain well and panfry until golden brown.
  • At the same time, heat a little fresh oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and gently sauté the red onion and capsicums with seasonings until tender, regularly stirring and adding a little stock if needed.
  • Mound the vegies on individual plates, top with sausages and sprinkle with the salsa. Serve any extra salsa in a small bowl on the side.
