spicy red bell pepper sauce

This sauce of roasted red bell peppers is so simple and delicious that you will be making it very often this summer. This fresh sauce is delicious with tapas, with lamb, fish, or with this pinchos morunos.

You can roast the peppers over a burner of the gas stove. You can also throw them in the barbecue between the coals. Roast them until the bell pepper is entirely blackened. The meat is cooked and softened this way.

Do not continue until all that’s black is gray. That’s ashes, and that means the meat underneath is also burnt. That is not tasty or healthy.

If you leave them for fifteen minutes, you can easily rub off the blackened skin. This is most of the work of the whole recipe.

Now cut the peppers into pieces and remove the seeds. Toss the meat with all ingredients in a bowl and make a puree. That’s all.
