I had a “taste” for salmon and wanted to make it at home. I also wanted something to dress it up; but, I didn’t want a cream sauce. I looked around the kitchen and spied some pears and I thought a nice pear salsa would “pear” quite deliciously with the fish. So I set out to create one. Here’s how I made mine:
CURRIED PEAR SALSA
- Juice of One Lemon
- 1/4 Tspn Cinnamon
- 1/2 Tspn Red Curry Powder
- 2 Bosc Pairs (Peeled, Cored and Quartered)
- 1/3 Red Bell Pepper
- 1/3 Orange Bell Pepper
- 1/3 Yellow Bell Pepper
- 1/2 Sweet Onion
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar (plus 1 Tbsp)
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and whisk together the lemon juice, cinnamon, red curry powder and 1 tbsp brown sugar. Then add the pears and toss thoroughly to coat. Spread the pears on a cookie pan and roast for 15 minutes. Remove to cool slightly and then cut into cubes.
While the pears are roasting, dice the peppers and onion. Add these to a small sauce pot and add the brown sugar, honey and apple cider vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a mixing bowl and add the pear cubes. Toss to mix thoroughly.
I do love a simple fish dinner. I had bought a nice piece of salmon at the local grocery store and dressed it with salt, pepper, butter and a few sprigs on dill and popped that bad boy in a preheated 450 degree oven and baked it for baked it for 15 minutes.
Once cooked, I added the pear salsa and OhMyYum! was it delicious.
Here’s a pic of the dinner.
Cheers and Enjoy!
