good food + awesome travel & occasional odd bits

Fire Roasted Salsa


It’s still grill season as far as I’m concerned. I love a good fresh salsa and some chips with my drink in the late afternoons. It’s been a while since we made our own salsas since it’s far too easy to buy decent ones at our corner market.

But! I planned ahead this time and decided to multitask and throw tomatoes on before we put on the fish to grill. While the fish was cooking, I was blending up a quick roasted tomato salsa in no time at all. Not only were we going to enjoy it with fresh tortilla chips, but it was also great with our fish tacos!

Fire roasted salsa:

4 roma tomatoes

4 arbol chiles

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tsp sea salt

handful of cilantro, stemmed

Roast the tomatoes until skins are blistered and getting black. Roast the chiles until they turn dark. Place all in a blender and blend until desired consistency is reached. Less for chunky salsa and longer for a smoother, more liquid salsa.
