Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

If you follow my blog, you’ll know how much I love roasted vegetables. Roasting food brings out so much flavor. And red peppers aren’t immune.

I came up with this recipe when I was trying to make a red pepper soup. The taste came out a little strong for an entire bowl of soup, so instead I made a few tweaks and turned it into a sauce!

It came out really tasty and pairs well with chicken or fish. My favorite is putting it with sea bass because it complements this buttery fish very well.

The Cook’s 2 Cents:

  • Removing the peel of the pepper isn’t absolutely necessary, but some people claim if you leave it on it can give your dish a bitter taste.
