Executive chef Michel Stroot at the Golden Door uses red and yellow pepper coulis side by side in plate presentations to add color, moisture, texture, and flavor. If you're in a hurry, instead of roasting fresh peppers, you can use 1 1/4 cups rinsed, drained canned roasted peppers. You can make the coulis ahead of time; cover and chill up to 3 days or freeze up to 6 months. Serve with Grilled Portabellas With Couscous
- 1 red bell pepper (or yellow about 10 oz.)
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon olive oil, salt to taste
- cayenne pepper
- Rinse 1 red or yellow bell pepper (about 10 oz.); pat dry.
- Set pepper in a 9-inch pie or cake pan and broil 3 to 4 inches from heat, turning as needed, until charred on all sides, about 15 minutes total.
- Let cool.
- With a small, sharp knife, remove and discard skin, stem, and seeds. Coarsely chop pepper and place in a blender or food processor.
- Add 1 tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon olive oil; whirl until smooth.
- Add salt and cayenne to taste.
- If coulis is thicker than desired, thin with 1 to 2 more tablespoons water.
Such a simple, healthy and tasty sauce! I made this to go with roasted green beans but think it would also be great with grilled meat or on a grilled eggplant sandwich. I made as written using an orange bell pepper, thanks for the post easy and healthy post that I will be making again.
I made this and used it with pasta. A great sweet and salty sauce that could be used for many dishes. Thanks!
