Roasted Tomato Salsa



  • 450g roma tomatoes, halved
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 an onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped coriander
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Sugar to taste


  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Place tomatoes, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle evenly with 1 teaspoon salt. Add jalapeño, garlic, and onion to baking sheet. Place baking sheet in grill and cook until tomatoes, jalapeños, garlic, and onion have slightly blackened, about 20 minutes, flipping jalapeño and garlic half way through.

  4. Stem and seed jalapeño and peel garlic. Transfer tomatoes, jalapeño, garlic, and onion to the work bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse until mixture is finely chopped
  5. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in coriander and lime juice. Season with salt and sugar to taste. Let rest in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container up to a week
