Notes

Create an easy, yet elegant meal for weekend entertaining – or for dinner tonight. Simply serve this savory, roasted red pepper sauce over grilled or broiled finfish (tuna, swordfish, mahi mahi or any variety of finfish). With roasted red peppers on your pantry shelf, this nourishing, made-from-scratch sauce takes little effort. A good source of beta carotene (forms vitamin A) and excellent sour of vitamin C – with little fat – this sauce is a flavorful way to get the nutrient-rich benefits of “red.”
