romesco I am going to keep this short and sweet. Because romesco sauce is easy and wonderful. You’ve heard of pesto right? Well, romesco sauce is basically pesto’s hot Spanish cousin.
Romesco sauce is a puree of roasted red pepper, almonds, and garlic. It’s perfect served as a dipping sauce or served over grilled meats. Traditionally when the red peppers are roasted the charred skin is removed before pureeing. But, I love the charred smokey flavor so I leave the charred skin on.
Romesco sauce is packed with aromatics, smokiness, and nutty flavor. Making it dangerously addictive. You will want to top it on everything. And dip everything in it. Except for cake, because that would ruin the cake.
