Jamie Oliver Romesco Sauce Ingredients

  • Roasted red bell peppers – All of us will cheer you on as you create something original. But because this is summer and we don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, the rest of us will be over here with our canned roasted red peppers, feeling just as accomplished.
  • Plum tomatoes – Canned is OK, but by all means, go ahead and use some fresh summer tomatoes from your garden. Bonus! Roasting the tomatoes may elevate your sauce to the next level.
  • Almonds – They make the dish more fascinating and enjoyable by adding texture and thickness.
  • Olive oil – We’re talking about an emulsion that has a creamy consistency here.
  • Lemon juice, garlic, parsley, and salt – are those responsible for the creation of tasty foods.

What To Use Romesco Sauce With?

In addition to fish, this Romesco Sauce Jamie Oliver is also delicious with other meats including chicken and steak. I find that it pairs very well with grilled or roasted veggies (especially eggplant, cauliflower, and potatoes).

Flatbread or crusty bread are excellent vehicles for dipping into Romesco Sauce. You may also use it as a dip for raw vegetables. Finally, it goes well with eggs prepared of any kind (fried eggs, frittatas, scrambled eggs, you name it).

How To Make Jamie Oliver Romesco Sauce?

  • Blend the ingredients until the texture is to your liking (I prefer it between chunky and smooth; I leave some texture with the almonds, but it’s largely a smooth emulsion).
  • Serve hot or cold with grilled chicken and veggies, crispy potatoes, eggs, and so forth.

Recipe Tips

This roasted red pepper sauce is versatile and easy to adjust to your tastes. Nonetheless, here are a few tips for making the greatest romesco sauce possible:

  • Use high-quality ingredients. Make sure the sauce is made using the highest quality components possible.
  • Prepare your own roasted peppers. If you’re looking to take things up a level, roasting your own red peppers is a great option. You will need 2 fresh red peppers to create romesco.
  • Put a little spice in at first and gradually add more. If you are concerned that this sauce may be excessively spicy, try it with less (or no) paprika or red pepper flakes. There’s always room for expansion!

How To Store Romesco Sauce Leftovers?

When stored in an airtight container, Romesco sauce can be kept in the refrigerator for 7 days. This Jamie Oliver recipe yields enough to last you several meals, which is fantastic. Any remaining sauce the next day can be used as a nutritious snack or included in a meal, such as a breakfast sandwich or omelet.

Can I Freeze Romesco Sauce?

Freezing Romesco sauce is a great way to preserve it for up to 6 months. Simply place in an airtight jar that may be frozen. Keep it in the fridge overnight to defrost. Mix well before serving.

FAQ Section

What If I Don’t Want To Use Nuts?

Yes, you may swap in sunflower or pumpkin seeds/pepitas. If you’re not gluten-free, you may also add a piece of crusty bread to thicken the sauce like in some traditional romesco recipes.

Should I Use Canned Peppers Instead Of Roasted Ones?

Yes, you certainly can. You can use your own judgment, but two red peppers should fill a 12-ounce jar after roasting.

Could I Use Canned Plum Tomatoes Instead Of Fresh Ones?

Yep! However, summertime tomatoes are a must-try.
