Curried Pear Salsa

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.

  1. What a great idea. This looks so fresh and summery! And sounds super easy to make, too. I’ll have to try it this summer, maybe adapt it for the grill…
