Grilled Habanero Salsa

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 11


12 to 15 habanero or scotch bonnet chiles
1 onion, small, cut lengthwise in half
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup orange juice, fresh, sour, or fresh lime juice
1/4 cup orange juice, fresh, regular
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar (optional)


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. When ready to cook, place a vegetable grate on the hot grill and preheat it for 5 minutes.

3. Arrange the chiles and onion halves (cut side down) on the hot grate and grill, turning often, until browned all over, 3 to 6 minutes. (The skins should be charred but the chiles and onion should not be cooked through.) Transfer the chiles and onions to a cutting board and let cool.

4. Scrape off any particularly burnt pieces of skin and finely chop the chiles and onion halves. Place in a serving bowl and stir in the garlic, sour orange juice, regular orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in the sugar (if using). Use this salsa sparingly it’s ornery! It is best served within 3 hours of preparing.

Makes about 1 cup enough to serve 8
