Romesco Sauce Starter celebrates a popular rich Spanish sauce and all the vibrant flavors of coastal Spanish cuisine. Garlic and vinegar are balanced with smoky paprika, and the ground almonds give weight to this red pepper and tomato-based sauce.
Romesco sauce is a widely used sauce throughout spain. Ground almonds and bread thicken this versatile sauce while garlic, shallots, and paprika lend the sauce its depth and bite. Although versions of the sauce range between each region and even each family, the original romesco sauce recipe dates back to the 15th century in Tarragona- a Catalonian coastal city just south of Barcelona. The sauce is traditionally prepared much like an Italian pesto sauce. Its ingredients are blended in a mortar and pestle until rendered into a thick sauce or spread. Rumor has it that romesco has such a desired flavor that many Spaniards will use any excuse they can to use this sauce with as many meals as possible.
