Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 2
  • 1 Tb. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped (I used Vidalia)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 red bell pepper, small dice
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeds partially removed, small dice
  • 2 Tb. tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 3 Tb. red wine vinegar
  • Splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a sauce pan over medium heat, warm up olive oil, then add garlic, onion, bay leaf and thyme. Cook for a minute or two, until the onions start to sweat.
  2. Add bell peppers and tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes, until everything combines and starts to break down.
  3. Add tomato paste, honey, red wine vinegar, S&P, Worcestershire sauce; mix well.
  4. Simmer for about 5-6 minutes. Taste for seasoning and remove thyme sprig. Set aside until fish is cooked.
  5. Grill or roast fish (I used 2 servings of salmon) and spread the relish over the cooked fish.
  6. Top with a little olive oil and fresh lemon juice just before serving.
This relish can be made ahead and heated just before serving.
