Spicy Peach Salsa
This spicy peach salsa is absolutely gorgeous! The combination of colours creates a beautiful presentation, while the delicious blend of sweet and spicy flavors makes it a wonderful addition to simply prepared fish, chicken, or pork dishes.
This one is a keeper, for sure!
Tip: Soak the red onion in a cup of water for 10-15 minutes before using to reduce its strong flavor and odour.
For best results, make this salsa the night before serving so the flavors have a chance to blend. This will also soften the peaches and onion to a nice consistency.
Prep time: 20 minutes (+ 30 minutes to overnight for flavors to develop)
Cook time: n/a
6 fresh peaches, pits removed and cut into small pieces
3 T. fresh lime juice
1 medium shallot, minced
3 T. red onion, cut into small, thin slices
1-2 t. jalapeno peppers, seeds and veins removed, and very finely minced
3 T. fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients* in a large glass or other non-reactive bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
*Tip: Start with a very small amount of jalapeno pepper and taste before adding more.
Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight or on the counter at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Serve with foil packet citrusy white fish or other minimally seasoned fish, chicken, or pork recipe. This can also be served in place of regular salsa with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
