Coconut Crusted Sole w/ Mango Salsa

Two things I really enjoy: fish and coconut. I’ve heard of coconut crusted proteins (most commonly fish or chicken) before but I’ve never tried it. I saw this recipe for coconut crusted fish from Spruce Eats (link here) and I knew it was time. The recipe calls for any firm white fish. I used sole…

Recipe #79: Pineapple Pico de Gallo

Pico de gallo is a fresh salsa, traditionally made with tomatoes. This pico, made with pineapple put a tropical twist on that classic. This was a very summery salsa which almost took my mind off the cold winter outside. Fresh salsa is just leaps better than jarred stuff. If you can, you should always try…

Recipe #68: Roasted Salsa Verde

I am always down for trying new things and I was excited for some salsa verde (green salsa). I’ve never had salsa verde or even had a tomatillo before, so this was going to be fun. The recipe was super easy. You just have to broil the tomatillos (and jalapeno, if using – I wanted…

Recipe #10: Everyday Red Salsa

Salsa, in spanish, just means sauce. You can make a salsa of anything really. I’d say a more common salsa, at least in western side of the world is tomato salsa. It pairs with many mexican dishes but it’s perfect good with some tortilla chips too. If I want a quick appetizer for a get-together,…

Recipe #69: Fabulous Fish Tacos

Yes, they were fabulous. I love a good fish taco and these tacos hit the spot. The fish was yum. The mango salsa was yum. The lime mayo was yum. Each component was delicious but then all together in a (whole wheat) tortilla, everything was better. Let’s break it down though. The fish – I…

Recipe #62: Grilled Corn Salsa

I know the corn for this salsa is supposed to be grilled but it snowed last night and there was no way I was going outside to grill (and unfortunately I do not have an indoor grill). So instead, I thought roasting the corn would give it a nice flavour – and it did! I…

Recipe #10: Melon Mojito Salsa

At first, this salad did not sound very appetizing to me. I’m not really a huge fan of fruit salad, and with the addition of cucumber, mint and jalapeno pepper, I didn’t have my hopes too high that this would be a winner. But yet again, I had another successful dish. The combination of the…
