A Simple Spicy Tomato Sauce

Introduction

This is a really fresh, zingy sauce. You can adjust the amount of chilli to your taste, but I like it quite spicy. Inspired by the original Bill Granger recipe, I serve this with trout or salmon that has been grilled or pan fried to get a crispy skin. I love it with tagliatelle, tossed with creme fraiche (helpful if the sauce is really spicy!) and baby spinach.

  • Add the oil to a pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the chilli, ginger and garlic to the pan and fry for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. You don't want to colour the spices, just take the raw edge off them.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan.
  • Add the soy sauce and sugar and cook down for 5-7 minutes. You want a fresh, light sauce with all the ingredients still identifiable, not a mushy mess.
