Green Sauce

Green Sauce

This green sauce, which I use all the time with fish and meat, is a unique mix of fresh parsley, oregano, and serrano and poblano chilies. If you don't like a blazing-hot amount of chilies, start with just a quarter of the poblano and the serrano, then decide whether you want to add more after tasting. You can use different peppers with this dish too: try jalapeño or whatever fresh peppers you have on hand. The sauce's flavor will be great whether you like it super-spicy or you opt to turn down the heat.


6 Garlic Cloves
3 Dried Bay Leaves
1 Poblano Chili (Coarsely Chopped, with seeds)
1 Serrano Chili (Coarsely Chopped, with seeds)
1½ Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/3 Cup Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley (Finely Chopped)
¼ Cup Fresh Oregano (Finely Chopped)
¼ Cup Fresh Basil (Finely Chopped)
¼ Cup Sherry Vinegar
½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil


1. Place the garlic, bay leaves, chilies, and salt in a mortar and mash with a pestle to a smooth paste. (If you don't have a mortar and pestle, put all the ingredients in a blender with just a teaspoon or so of the vinegar and puree.) Transfer to a medium bowl and add the parsley, oregano, and basil. Whisk in the vinegar and olive oil until well combined

Chocolate Budino
Chocolate Budino

Budino in Italian means pudding but this is more like a molten cake, moist and almost gooey in the middle when served warm from the oven. I like to serve the budino with a scoop of homemade Banana Chocolate-Chunk Ice Cream (in my cookbook, Cooking From the Hip), but it's also great with creme anglaise and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
