Oct 26, 2015 05:26AM ● Published by Family Features

(Family Features) As the holiday season fills with party after party and spreads of delicious food, you’ll want to ensure that your meal leaves guests with a lasting impression. With artful seasoning and creative presentation, your dish can be the shining star of this year’s holiday festivities.

When entertaining a crowd of family and friends, plan your holiday spread around a centerpiece dish. A large-format entree such as a leg of lamb, whole fish or roast will not only look beautiful on the table, it will feed everyone at the party.

Tantalize taste buds with a dish that is filled with flavor by incorporating rich ingredients, such as capers and cornichon pickles, along with a few dashes of Tabasco Sauce to create unforgettable flavor with the perfect hint of heat. Friends and family will go back for seconds and thirds while toasting to the most delicious time of the year.

Prime Rib Roast with Salsa Verde

Ingredients

Salsa verde:
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons cornichon pickles, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 shallot, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch Italian flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco Green Jalapeno Sauce
Roast and potatoes:
  • 1 boneless prime rib roast (6 pounds)
  • 2 1/2 pounds red bliss potatoes, halved
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 5 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper, divided

  1. For salsa verde, blend all ingredients and puree until smooth. Adjust Tabasco Green Jalapeno Sauce as needed.
  2. For roast and potatoes, sit roast at room temperature 30-60 minutes.
  3. Heat oven to 300°F.

  5. Season roast with remaining salt and pepper.
