Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
I can’t believe I have not made tomatillo salsa until now. What was I thinking? This salsa is tangy, spicy, and delicious! I served it with pork tacos and homemade tortilla chips. We all enjoyed this roasted tomatillo salsa, especially me… I absolutely loved it!
How to Make a Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Place the oven rack 3 inches from the top of the oven. Turn the oven to broil.
Cover a baking sheet with tin foil then coat it with cooking spray. Place the washed tomatillos on the baking sheet. Place into the oven under broil for 3-4 minutes, or until blackened. Flip the tomatillos over and place back under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until blackened. Remove from the oven and place the tomatillos in a large zip lock bag. Seal and set aside for 5 minutes. Remove the blackened skin and place the tomatillos into a bowl. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Place onion, serrano pepper, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice in the bowl with the tomatillos. Season with sea salt, to taste. Blend the salsa with an immersion blender until smooth. Taste and re-season with lime juice or salt, if needed. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle. Serve with tacos, chips, burritos, eggs – the possibilities are endless!
I had a friend who had a tomatillo tree in her garden. This recipe would have been perfect for when they were ripe 🙂
A fantastic salsa! I harvested 10 very small tamatiollo this year..they didn’t taste as good as I expected. I must have done something wrong with the plant.
I will definitely have to try this. Looks perfect for tacos.
OMG it is absolutely one of our favorites. Just so much more flavor and character. I hate working with the tomatillos but it’s worth it.
Now for a creamy sauce, just blend this together with a cubed avocado in the blender and you have a killer salsa verde cremosa to squirt on tacos, burritos, or the like. A Mexican friend of ours turned us on to that.
