Simple Red Pepper Sauce (great on fish!)

I hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July! Nick worked most of the day but Paige and I went to the parade and enjoyed some alone time until he got home, then we went to a friend’s house for a delicious meal and fireworks. As I do for most summer cookouts, I made my favorite quinoa salad. Delicious.

Do you know what else is delicious? This simple red pepper sauce. It could be served on a cold pasta dish (or hot, I suppose, just heat it up), or zoodles (zucchini noodles, the new thing, I’ve noticed) or fish, or even just some delicious hearty bread. Why not? Dip away!Simple Red Pepper Sauce (great on fish!) 1

I added the sauce to some pan-cooked bay scallops (so, no, this isn’t a photo of gnocchi like you thought). A little butter in the pan, heat, add the scallops, cook for about 5-10 minutes. All done (with a little pepper on top). Add the sauce, top with some dried cilantro if you want to be cool like me, and enjoy.Simple Red Pepper Sauce (great on fish!) 2

So simple, so tasty. And, low FODMAPs! This sauce would also be really nice heated up and added to a pizza or even gnocchi (such as the photos look). Just because it’s meant to be cold doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be good with a little heat, right?Simple Red Pepper Sauce (great on fish!) 4
