This is a fantastic spicy sauce that takes advantage of grilled peppers. It is a perfect match for fresh Halibut steaks that Katherine’s coworker brought back from Seattle. Have we mentioned we love this coworker?
The sauce would also work for grilled pork or chicken. We had a nice salad to start and grilled baby eggplant on the side. All in all it was the perfect summer meal.
