Charred Tomato Coulis

  • Yield: About 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Put the tomatoes over 2 gas burners on high and cook, turning occasionally, until charred and peeling. Alternatively, broil the tomatoes until charred. Put the tomatoes in a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Set aside to steam for 5 minutes. Peel and seed the tomatoes.
  • Transfer the tomatoes to a blender with the vinegar and garlic and puree until smooth. While the motor is running, drizzle in the oil until incorporated. Season with pepper, to taste.
