Spicy Peach Salsa
This spicy peach salsa is absolutely gorgeous! The combination of colors 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!
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.
Tip: Soak the red onion in a cup of water for 10-15 minutes before using to reduce its strong flavor and odor.
- large mixing bowl
- cutting board
- 6 fresh peaches, pits removed and cut into small pieces
- 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
- ½ medium shallot, minced
- 3 tbsp red onion, cut into small, thin slices
- 1-2 tsp jalapeno peppers, seeds and veins removed, and very finely minced
- 3 tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed and chopped
- salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and stir to combine. (Start with a very small amount of jalapeno pepper and taste before adding more).
Season with salt and pepper.
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 citrus orange roughy or other minimally seasoned fish, chicken or pork recipe. This can also be served in place of regular salsa with tortilla chips.
