This green sauce is great for fish—especially salmon. The fresh dill and oregano bring lots of herby, bright flavor, while the urfa biber adds subtle heat. Note: You can also use this as a salad dressing or dip for crudités. —Josh Cohen

I made this as a dip for deepfried whitebait rolled in chilli powder and flour. It was delicious and was loved by my foodie friends group. I only have a small hand held blender but that was enough. Looked good and tasted better!
