The first ketchup was a pickled fish condiment popular in the 17th century in China, discovered by visiting Brits. Creative Americans added tomatoes during Colonial times. Try this savory spicy sauce on a burger, with pork or fish, or even as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers.

great as a pasta sauce

I modified this recipe a little; I added four chopped tomatoes to the cooking process, a small pinch of sugar, and ended up using more than a 1/4 cup of water at various stages throughout the recipe. After pureeing I added the sauce to one lb of pork sausage sauteed with garlic and shallots and then added butter sauteed red pepper slices. Poured over some tri-color penne and garnished with shredded parmesan.

Fun to make, and fairly easy
Great sauce!!

This is great and fairly easy to make. I did add extra ginger, though, as I love ginger. I also didn't add water and puree. I found the un-pureed consitency to be to my liking. Perhaps not as smooth as a ketchup, but a little more chunky like a thick salsa. So I guess mine could be called Spicy Banana Salsa. Oh yeah, I didn't have fresh jalapeno so I used the jarred ones so it wasn't as hot. It was still delicious!
