Excellent romesco sauce! I did add a drizzle of EVOO and a little salt to the shrimp before grilling. My guests loved it! I only grilled 1 pound of shrimp, so I had a lot of sauce left over. I used it today on penne pasta and it was delicious with some sauteed portobello mushrooms and steamed chard from my garden.
