7 ounces garlic, thinly sliced
7 ounces canned anchovies in oil, rinsed and drained
14 ounces unsalted butter
Half-fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Find a bowl that will hold all your ingredients and is the right size to sit over your saucepan without falling in or sticking out too much. Place the garlic in the bottom of the bowl, top with the anchovies, and finally the butter. Lower the heat and leave to simmer gently until all the ingredients have dissolved into a seriously tasty sauce.
This sauce can be transformed by adding some roughly chopped toasted walnuts and a splash of cream. I also grate 100% cacao solids chocolate over it and a sprinkling of edible gold leaf, which is guaranteed to solve all existential problems.
