It's Super Bowl weekend here is the U.S. which means tons of yummy, greasy, carby foods will overtake our tables this Sunday. Before you reach for those prawns packaged up in those containers and serve it with boring old cocktail sauce, do I have just the thing for you!
And even if you're not into the whole Super Bowl weekend mania, Valentine’s day is also creeping up on us and you’re going to want to know how to make this even if you’re not celebrating Valentine’s and simply need a great recipe for dinner with family, friends or no occasion at all.
Because the Romesco sauce is a Spanish classic!
Versions of this Catalan favorite have with everything from tomato paste to chilly powder and no matter how you want to jazz this up, it remains so good.
A dee-lee-cious addition on everything from turkey sandwiches, roast chicken, roll ups or served traditionally as I’m doing here with sautéed jumbo prawns.
Uber simple to make, it all begins with pulling your small roasting pan and roasting some garlic cloves and plum tomatoes, then add almonds and macadamias or hazel nuts. The whole thing put into the food processor with roasted red peppers from a jar, olive oil and red wine vinegar. The result is a wonderful healthful sauce you will love.
And feel free to add a touch of tomato paste and smoked Spanish Pimenton if you want a richer and more heavily seasoned sauce but I wouldn’t over do it.
This dish does deserve a bit of a splurge with jumbo tiger prawns and will take all of two minutes to put together once your sauce is made.
The whole production is a teensy bit of effort and a whole lot of ooh-la-la!
