Romesco sauce for potluck pintxos

Jump to recipe

This romesco sauce is an accompanying recipe to the potluck pintxos we posted for the holidays. You can watch the video of this recipe here, but be sure to check out the recipe for those smoky pork shoulder bites.

This recipe was adapted from Serious Eats.

Tasting and lessons learned

This was a lovely addition to my potluck pork pintxos! The nutty flavors from the almonds were very pleasant and the various smoked ingredients lightly complimented the smoked pork shoulder bites. The vinegar is essential in this recipe because it helps to cut through some of the fattiness of the pork shoulder.

In the future, I would cut this batch in half or smaller. It makes a lot of sauce and only keeps in the fridge for about 5 days. I haven’t tried freezing it, but that may be an option in the future.
