Allow to soften and start to caramelise for 3-4 minutes, being careful not to let it burn, and then pour in the passata, red peppers, sherry vinegar, hot smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Allow to reduce and cook down for about 15-20 minutes until it has developed a deep rich flavour. Add the salt and check for seasoning.
