Fried Serrano Chile Salsa

Recipe from: Bon Appétit, May 2003
Servings: About 3/4 cup

½ cup olive oil
6 green serrano chiles
1 ¾-inch-thick slice from medium-size white onion
½ garlic clove, peeled
½ teaspoon coarse kosher salt

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry chiles until blistered, about 3 minutes. Remove chiles from oil. Cool chiles and chile oil completely.

Line large skillet with foil; heat over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and blackened in spots, about 5 minutes per side. Cool.

Cut stems off chiles. Combine chiles, onion, garlic, salt, and 2 tablespoons chile oil in blender; chop finely. With blender running, slowly drizzle in remaining chile oil and blend until thick. (Can be made 1 day ahead; cover and chill.)
