  • Recipe: Pineapple Cilantro Salsa

    So I am a foodie. Between my books, my computer, my saved newspaper and magazine recipes.... I got probably millions of recipes and am always cooking. I worked is restaurants most of my adult life (well restaurants, bars and clubs) tending bar but I also would help on the line, in bars I have run the kitchen....etc... Anyway my point just is I cook and have cooked a ton (still cater private parties in the side) so although I am far from a chef, I am gonna try to start putting some recipes up here.

    Now I read in a journal someone asking about talapia.... I am not a huge fan but a simple salsa over the talapia and rice ain't to bad.

    Salsa

    Dice:
    Pineapple
    Mango
    Tomatoes (optional and must be strained after they are dived)
    Red onion (ok here is the deal with RAW onion, after you split or quarter it you should soak it in ice water for a good long time... It will mellow it out and keep it from over powering whatever its with... And dice it real small)
    Garlic (you can slice it thin if you are a garlic nut like me...or dice it real small)
    Cilantro (don't use dry, please use fresh)
    Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste

    Mix it all up then add evoo... How much is up to you... I love good olive oil but you still want a salsa and not a sauce.

    Refrigerate covered so it all blends together.

    You can bake the talapia, grill it (pain in the ass with talapia, grill it wrapped in foil, etc... I would bake it with some of the salsa on it.

    Serve it over rice with as much salsa as you like.

    If you try the salsa... It goes with a ton of things. I got it from a hotel I worked at that used to serve it with grilled shrimp but it is great to add flavor to anything that's kinda bland (white meat chicken for example).

    If anyone has anything they want a recipe for just post the question here. I will TRY to be healthy with it...lol... But I'll post up one I've used or one from a source I trust.

    BTW, if you love to cook subscribe to "cooksillistrated"! By far the BEST mag for the average person. These are the same people that do "Americas test kitchen" on public tv....GREAT SHOW.

    Peace.

    Threads like this should have proper titles, IMO. Would make it easier for people to find.

    Something like: "Recipe: Pineapple Cilantro Salsa"

    On a side note, I make a similar salsa and it works great with chicken or fish.

      Nice recipe Dunhill. I am big fan of tilapia.

      I was actually just on my way out to pick up some tilapia. Here is my recipe:

      This makes 4 servings and the nutritional facts per serving are for one 6 oz. tilapia fillet (I eat more than 1 fillet) with an 1/2 cup of the relish and 1 lime wedge.

      2 teaspoons canola oil
      1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
      1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
      1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
      4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
      1 1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple chunks
      1/3 cup chopped onion
      1/3 cup chopped plum tomato
      2 tablespoons rice vinegar
      1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
      1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
      4 lime wedges

      Directions:
      Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle fish evenly with spice mixture. Add fish to pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
      Combine pineapple and next 5 ingredients (through jalapeño) in a large bowl, stirring gently. Serve pineapple mixture with fish. Garnish with lime wedges.

      Quick and Easy.

      Enjoy!

          I'll try one of these out this week with the family. Tilapia is one of the few things I do well, or so says the wife.

          Thanks fellas.

            Yea, I'll post a recipe for anything anyone wants one for. As I said I cook a lot so while I don't pretend to be a trained chef...I have worked in many kitchens. I'll add a cpl later or tomorrow. Oh and as I said, anyone with a good recipe ... Feel free to post.

            Peace.

              Great idea Dun, but this should go in the appropriate forum (bulking lounge or pre contest).

                    One pre-contest thing I was doing was this:

                    1-2 scoops of vanilla or chocolate protein powder mixed into a pudding consistency. You can even do one of each, but mix them separately.

                    Mix PB2 (Powdered Peanut Butter) 5 tbsp into a somewhat runny consistency.

                    Get a Tupperware bowl and spray it with a couple shots of not stick spray so that you can pull your frozen concoction out later.

                    Now dump your concoctions one flavor at a time in the bowl (ex vanilla, then chocolate, then PB2).

                    Put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours.

                    Real simple, but during a diet this is a God send. Calories are 130 per scoop of protein, and 115 for the 5 tbsp of PB2. So even if you do 2 scoops of the protein you are only getting in 375 calories. I think it totals about 55 grams of protein this way.

                    It's nice with the flavors, being separate, but you can also mix the ingredients all together and it's almost like a frozen peanut butter cookie. This is great with coffee too.

                      I guess you did not read the intent of the thread. The idea was to post a bunch off different recipes without having to start a new thread for each recipe.... Hence the 'open' title. Oh well... I'll just leave it as it is and not bother adding cause it won't make sense now. I was gonna post recipes in my journal but started this thread so people wouldn't have to go thru a bunch of posts to find recipes.

                          There were some decent recipes posted in the thread I linked below. So if you are consolidating worthy recipes into one thread, a few from this thread might make the cut:

                          Maybe call the thread "Dunhill's Kitchen" lol

                            Why don't you get butt-hurt about it?

                            Maybe a title with a better description so that someone actually searching in the future might be able to find it would be more fitting for you?

                              "But -hurt"? Lol yea that's it.

                              Title? Um thought "how to prepare..." Was a simple basic title.
