Food stylist and editor Frances Boswell's recipe for this Spanish roasted red pepper and almond sauce calls for two different kinds of paprika -- sweet smoked and hot. Serve alongside Shrimp and Clams a la Plancha.
Pulse almonds and garlic in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add piquillo peppers, both paprikas, oil, and vinegar; puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Romesco can be stored in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.
