Muhammara is a relish, or creme, made from paprikas and walnuts. It’s a great side to most grilled meats, both fish and red meats.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

ImperialMetric
10 oz grilled paprika
5 oz walnuts
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp balsamic vinegar creme
1 tsp chipotle chili
2 tbsp canola oil or peanut oil
1 tsp salt
300 grams grilled paprika
150 grams walnuts
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp balsamic vinegar creme
1 tsp chipotle chili
2 tbsp canola oil or peanut oil
1 tsp salt

Instructions

Grilled paprikas are usually bought in glass jars. Add all ingredients in a blender and blend well. If you want more heat, add more chipotle chili. If you feel like it, add 1 crushed garlic clove, but it’s not necessary.

A note on the oil: avoid olive oil, it adds an undesired flavor. Use a neutral oil like canola oil or peanut oil.
