Serving suggestions

Salsa Romesco belongs to the traditional cooking of Catalonia; its origin is Tarragona. It is used as much with fish as it is an accompaniment to barbecued rabbit. It is a recipe which dates from the 16th century, when, thanks to the discovery of America, when peppers and tomatoes became known in Europe. This sauce will be tastier if prepared a day in advance.
