I like to mess up classics when it comes to food. I mean, all the recipes on this blog is a mess up of what’s supposed to be classic or traditional. I call it “interpretation” but it’s mostly using what I happen to have and making it fit into certain food types… just so I can make it seem like I thought things through and specifically planned the dish out.
This salsa is one example of this types of dishes. Did a once-over of the fridge, took inventory of what I had and slap a few things together that I think might work and salsa appeared!
It’s not the hardest thing to make. Just bit of chopping and we have a nice bowl of fresh something to brighten up dinner.
All those ingredients also mirror the marinade I used for the main course, which is always great. **Pro tip: if you’re doing a themed dinner, try to carry through one or two ingredients in every course just to emphasize on the consistency of flavours. It’s kinda fun and also really delicious.
A little sour, a little sweet, a little crunchy, a little chewy… Just the best accompaniment to grilled food. 🙂
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” (Galations 5:1)
- 1 Ripe Kiwi, peeled & cubed
- 1 Tomato, cubed
- 1 Shallot, peeled & thinly sliced
- ½ small clove Garlic, finely grated or minced
- 1 tsp Fish Sauce
- 1 tbsp runny Honey
- ½ tsp Lime Juice
- ¼ cup chopped Coriander, loosely packed
- pinch of ground Black Pepper
- Pour fish sauce, honey & lime juice into a medium sized bowl and stir to loosen up the honey.
- Toss everything else into the bowl and stir!
- Adjust seasonings.
- Serve immediately. Doesn't keep well as the tomato and kiwi will leech out liquids.
