DIRECTIONS

  • Position the top oven rack 4 to 5 inches from the broiler element; preheat the broiler.
  • Combine the jalapeno pepper, shallots, garlic and cherry tomatoes in a large cast-iron skillet or a roasting pan; place in the oven to broil for 10 to 15 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until the vegetables are blackened all over.
  • Remove from the oven and reserve the garlic; transfer the remaining vegetables to the bowl of a food processor and let cool slightly.
  • When the garlic is cool enough to handle, discard the papery skins; add the garlic to the food processor, then add the sherry vinegar, salt and water. Pulse or process briefly until the mixture is pureed but still a little chunky. Taste and adjust salt as necessary; thin with water as needed. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 week.
