La parilla charred habanero salsa

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 \N Roma (plum) tomatoes
3 \N Habanero chiles
¼ cup Water
⅛ teaspoon Kosher salt

Salsas in the Yucatan are usually quite simple, while recados tend to make the dishes they season complex. Perhaps that is why simplicity is seen as a virtue when it comes to salsas. But I think there is another reason: the habanero chile, reputedly the hottest pepper in the world. In addition to the heat, habaneros have a citrusy aroma and flavor that are best savored on their own. This salsa is the classical accompaniment to meats and seafood cooked in achiote. Try it on Grilled Squid Yucatan Style. There are variations with onion, orange juice, and mint, but this simple version is my favorite.

Pan roast tomatoes until blistered, deeply browned, and soft. Pan roast chiles until dark brown, then remove seed cores.

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend smooth. Use within several hours.
