Romesco is a classic Catalan sauce with a robust, coarse-grained, and spreadable texture. Recipes vary, but you can expect most to include a blend of roasted red peppers, mild ñora chiles, garlic, hazelnuts or almonds, bread crumbs, olive oil, and occasionally, tomatoes. The allure of this sauce lies in its fine balance of smoky, sweet, and nutty flavors. It gets incorporated into a sandwich here.
