Romesco sauce is said to have originated in in the coastal city of Tarragona, Spain, in the 15th century. Originally served as an accompaniment to fish, the thick, ingredient-variable sauce can also be stirred into soups or stews, served with vegetables, and used as topping for pizza or toasted bread. While the recipe varies from region to region and even family to family, common ingredients include roasted red peppers, ground almonds, garlic, tomatoes, bread and oil. The ingredients are blended, traditionally using a pestle and mortar, much like Italian pesto.
