Expert Tips

  • To toast nuts, which brings out their flavor, cook in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until browning begins. Then, stir constantly until golden brown.
  • This flavorful dip is based on romesco, a classic Spanish sauce served with fish and poultry, which includes almonds, red bell pepper, tomato, onion and garlic as hallmark ingredients.
