Having 5 fresh pineapples this week (they were $1 each), meant thinking of new ways to eat pineapple. I had a fish taco once years ago that had pineapple salsa on it… I’ve often thought about that fish taco and figured this was the perfect time to make me one!
So I grilled up some tilapia and made up a batch of fresh pineapple salsa. I also threw in some white rice in the tortillas… I think these were even better than the ones in my memory banks! ;o)
Such a cool refreshing meal on a hot summer evening!
Here’s the recipe for the salsa…
1 small pineapple, peeled, cored and finely chopped
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 whole jalapeno pepper, finely chopped (you can seed it and use less for a milder salsa)
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
juice from 1 lime
Mix and then chill for a few hours to let flavors combine. Serve with tortilla chips or with fish or chicken tacos.
