If you've tried Chimichurri and liked check out Chimichurri Rojo/Red. A little more pep and flavour to one of the best condiments you can make!
Again this is ideal for grilled meats and vegetables just as it is for adding a twang to an ordinary dish. It lasts in the fridge for weeks so make lots and use as and when you can.

Step 2: Pepper Preperarion
Other than chopping and mixing the only real preparation you have to do is to skin the peppers. The skin left on would add a texture that would result in a lot less luxurious sauce, as without the skin the pepper flesh softens in the acidic vinegar mix.
Using your hob, leave the pepper(s) over a naked flame until the entire pepper is blackened and scorched. Then place in a plastic box or bag (environmentally, a multi-use box is best).
This allows the hot pepper to effectively steam off the skin. Once cooled to touch you can wipe the blackened skin off and remove altogether.
Lightly chop the peppers and place in a bowl.
Chop your parsley / Cilantro with a large knife or herb cutter and place in a bowl, coarsely chop the garlic cloves and add each other ingredient in an easy to pour/add container or spoon so you can put everything together easily.
Now in a large bowl add the green herbs, the chopped peppers, 100ml of olive oil, chopped garlic cloves, red wine vinegar, tomato puree, paprika and the sea salt.
Stir the ingredients well and then cover and refrigerate.
The flavours need a little time to properly mix, the longer you leave them the better and the vinegar/oil helps preserve the ingredients for several weeks if kept covered.
Use on Grilled Meats, vegetables, Halloumi, Potato fries you name it - it works great!
