Recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

This recipe for roasted red pepper sauce will quickly become one of those that you look for reasons to make. Trust me when I say that you’ll find plenty of reasons. The sauce is creamy in texture with a slight vinegar flavor pairing perfectly with fish and seafood dishes. I love serving it with mashed potatoes and pan seared chilean sea bass. I’ve also poured it over pasta with blackened shrimp and it was fantastic.

How to make Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

In this recipe for roasted red pepper sauce I wanted it to be creamy, vinegary, bright in color, and pair well with the flavor of garlic. I made the recipe specific to somewhat recreate one of my favorite dishes from Biaggi’s Italian Restaurant.

The sauce is extremely easy to make while still looking and tasting like a true fine dining experience.

First, using a fine mesh strainer, pour the oil and juice out of the jar of roasted red peppers then add the peppers to a food processor.

Next, quarter four Roma tomatoes and slice a small shallot placing both in the food processor as well.

Lastly, add minced garlic, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, and paprika to the tomatoes and peppers. Blend all the ingredients in the food processor until everything is well mixed and becomes soupy.

Place the dish in the fridge until about 30 minutes before ready to serve.

At that point, pour the sauce in a small sauce pan over medium heat bringing to a boil. Once its boiling slowly add the cream constantly stirring to combine.

Return to a boil, immediately remove from heat, whisk in cornstarch and allow the sauce to thicken.

There you have it, a beautiful, colorful, creamy roasted red pepper sauce ready to serve!
