Fire Roasted Salsa Recipe Grill

Since anything worth doing is worth adding smoke flavor to take it to the next level, let’s talk about making (FIRE) roasted tomato salsa that you can be proud of: homemade fire roasted salsa on the grill!

You can add a layer of flavor complexity to your salsa that cannot be achieved by opening the lid of a jar of store-bought salsa by first lighting up your grill and smoke roasting your tomatoes and vegetables.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love throwing ingredients on the grill to first add smoke flavor. One of my favorite recipes of all time is my Smoked Gazpacho, which follows the same principal of first roasting the veggies over fire to add smoke flavor, which in my mind is the unsung hero of the recipe, adding its own version of Umami.

If you like the idea of smoked salsa, try my Grilled Pineapple Black Bean Salsa as well. If you enjoy grilled pineapple and how its flavor develops on the grill, you’ll enjoy the flavor combinations of pineapple, black beans, coconut, and lime in this salsa.

Last but not least, keep in mind that roasting tomatoes is also great for making FIRE roasted marinara and Smoked BBQ Sauce, which you can find in my cookbook, Healthy Electric Smoker.

Therefore, the following time you prepare a salsa, soup, or marinara, consider how you can add smoke flavor by grilling the ingredients first!
