Another day at home
playing with ingredients in the kitchen,
and this pineapple salsa turned out
to being an absolute keeper
that I'll be serving with
Alaska grilled halibut fillets...
Yields: 1 Cup
Prep: 15 Mins.
Marinate: 30 Minutes
¼ cup Mexican beer
--(I used Dos Equis)
1 tablespoon honey
1 (8 oz. can) pineapple rings, drained, and cut into small wedges
--(feel free to use fresh pineapple)
2 green onions, finely sliced
--(use all white and green parts)
¼ cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
½ fresh jalapeno, cut lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
--(a small handful)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
½ teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
In a small non-reactive glass or ceramic bowl, whisk the beer and honey, and add the pineapple wedges; tossing to combine. Refrigerate while preparing other ingredients for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Drain off and discard all but 2 tablespoons of marinade from bowl. Add the green onions, red bell pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and sea salt; tossing all in bowl with pineapple to combine. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes prior to serving over grilled halibut, salmon, ham, pork, or turkey. ~ Enjoy!
