The many uses of romesco

saralynn77 Sep 3, 2009 01:48 PM

On my day off yesterday i opened up the absolutely amazing the new spanish table and quickly cooked up both the scallops with pistachio vinnaigrette and the shrimp with romesco. we were so full i could just manage to bake the lemon bars, forget about the sopa de ajo, which i had originally planned on being the main.

Anyways, the romesco sauce, i made a ton. ive used it to spread on sandwiches and to eat with eggs. Any other creative uses for this delicious leftover?

    Serve it as a dressing on a mesclun salad (adding more oil to the romesco if you need to for the right consistency).

      Add to mayo and use as a condiment for burgers and sandwiches.

        - drizzle over grilled or steamed vegetables
        - stir into mashed potatoes
        - combine with some mayo, sour cream or yogurt and to dress for chicken, tuna or potato salad.
