Sausages with Grilled-Pepper & Mustard Relish


Sweet Italian sausages are especially good with the tangy vinaigrette here. Chef Vitaly Paley likes Nicky USA’s Russian-style wild boar sausage with caraway seeds.

  1. 1 medium red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  3. Sea salt
  4. Freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 red bell peppers
  6. 2 poblano chiles
  7. 3 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  8. 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  9. 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  10. 2 teaspoons sugar
  11. 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
  12. 6 sweet Italian sausages (1 pound)
  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the onion slices with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning once, until softened and lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop.
  2. Roast the bell peppers and poblano chiles on the grill or under a preheated broiler, turning, until charred all over. Let cool. Peel, seed and stem the peppers and chiles, then thinly slice them crosswise.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the peppers and chiles with the onion. Add the mustard, parsley, vinegar, sugar, thyme and the 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the relish with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a large cast-iron skillet. Prick the sausages with a knife and cook over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve with the mustard relish.
