Aji Mirasol Salsa

  • Details
  • Related Items

Aji Mirasol Chiles, the dried form of the Aji Amarillo, are a unique chile pepper absent from the arsenal of many chefs. A staple of Peruvian cuisine, their uniquely fruity flavor make Aji Mirasols a versatile pepper; great in a wide variety of dishes, but especially salsa. The combination of fresh citrus, cilantro and the slightly spicy Aji Mirasol chiles just begs to be eaten with grilled halibut, shrimp, chicken, pork or goat. Try some at your next barbecue and wow your guests with one-of-a-kind South American flair!

    Is there a way to adapt this recipe to aji amarillo powder rather than the whole chiles? I have a bunch of the powder and no idea how best to use it.

      You could rehydrate the ground chiles by whisking in boiling water. Let it sit, then add more hot water, slowly, until it’s a smooth paste. Then follow the rest of the recipe. If it seems a bit too thick, then add a wee bit more water. Be sure to taste for seasoning – you might need to add more salt or more lime juice to balance the flavors. You could use that method to make a paste, too. There are lots of recipes on the web using Aji Mirasol (or Aji Amarillo, which is what they’re called when they’re fresh) paste. Good luck!
