- On a cutting board, use the blade and flat side of a chef’s knife to chop and smash garlic and 1 1/2 tsp salt together to form a paste. In a small bowl, use fingers to mix together garlic paste, cilantro, 2 tsp lime zest, 1/2 tsp black pepper, cumin, and cayenne. Add diced red pepper; toss to coat.
