Cooked Tomatillo Salsa

The fresh, almost lemony taste of tomatillo makes this lovely green salsa (salsa verde) the perfect condiment for grilled fish or poultry. For a slightly different flavor, roast the tomatillos on a fish grid over a hot grill until they are slightly charred and begin to show a yellowish color. Husk the cooled tomatillos and continue the simple cooking vegetable recipes.
