Can we talk about fruit for a hot second here on this blog? In the past week, I have found the best produce- the velvetiest fleshed mangoes from an Asian grocery store, pineapples with sticky sweet juice, and berries at absurdly low prices. It has started a smoothie craze at our place (this blueberry pineapple smoothie, among other creations), but we still can’t seem to eat it fast enough.
On Friday night after a long day, I stopped at Whole Foods to take advantage of the $1 avocado sale. Not only was I stuck with a whole pineapple that was ready to burst, but the avocados I stocked up on were so soft that I had to take care of them ASAP. I bought a piece of cod and the rest is history.
- 1 cup diced pineapple
- 1 cup diced avocado
- ½ cup diced cucumber
- ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
- ½ lime
- Pinch of salt
- Slice and dice the pineapple, avocado, and cucumber into small cubes.
- Chop the red onion finely.
- Combine all ingredients with the juice of ½ a lime and a pinch of salt.
- Let it sit together for a few minutes before serving.
While it may take you 5 minutes to slice and dice the ingredients for this salsa, cooking the fish takes even less time so you can have dinner on the table in 10 minutes (I’m giving you time to plate everything over a bed of lettuce and grab a glass of ice water!). This meal is definitely going to stay in our dinner rotation as long as I can find these amazing deals on pineapple and avocado! The cucumber and red onion are in for crunch and zest, and the lime and salt to tone down the sweetness of the pineapple. Let me know if you try out this 10 minute meal!
Noah and I each enjoyed our pineapple avocado salsa over small cod fillets sprinkled with salt and pepper and cooked in a pan with a bit of olive oil [2 minutes on each side on medium-low heat]. When the fish was done, we threw it on top of a bed of mixed greens and topped it with a generous amount of salsa.
This would be just as delicious on top of chicken or another type of fish- let me know if you try it out by emailing me a picture or hash tagging #uprootfromoregon on social media!
