It's an easy way to jazz up chicken or shrimp.

This Spanish-inspired sauce is savory and slightly tart-sweet from the jarred roasted red peppers. Master it, and you can transform chicken, seafood, grains, or vegetables into a delicious dish.

We dabbed some on steamed shrimp with grilled onions and asparagus.

Total time to prepare: 15 minutes.

Yield: 1 cup (16 Tbs.) 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. tomato paste
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 jarred roasted red peppers
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt

Directions:

1. In a small pan over medium-low heat, sauté the tomato paste, garlic, and almonds in the oil, stirring often, until the tomato paste starts to darken, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

2. Purée the sautéed ingre­dients with the roasted red peppers in a blender or food processor until smooth.

3. Season with up to ½ tsp. of salt.
