Yesterday we interviewed David Taylor, chef at the wildly popular Marina restaurant A16.

Today Taylor shares with SFoodie the recipe for A16's handmade salsa verde. While it's served on pork belly at the restaurant, Taylor is quick to mention that it goes well with just about any rich meat and seafood. He particularly likes it on salmon and halibut. In his words, "It's just a really nice, general purpose protein condiment."

Salsa Verde

1/2 bunch Italian flat leaf parsley

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 red onion

1 lemon

4 tablespoons capers

Olive oil

Crush the Italian flat leaf parsley in a mortar and pestle with the salt. Add olive oil to cover. Set aside.

Mince the red onion. Place the minced red onion in a separate container and macerate for 30 minutes in just enough lemon juice to cover. Salt to taste.

Rinse and chop the capers and place in a third container. Mix all three components together in a bowl just before serving.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
