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.
Servings 4 people
- 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
- 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.
