Recipe

with pineapple and cilantro salsa

This is a great dish in the summer months. The tropical salsa cools you down and keeps the heat out of the kitchen.

Ingredients

Roasted cumin-rubbed snapper

  • 1 tablespoon toasted whole cumin seed, ground or smashed with a mortar and pestle (can substitute pre-ground cumin)
  • ½ tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • Dash ground or smashed coriander
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ¼ lb fresh snapper

Pineapple and cilantro salsa

  • 1 ½ cups pineapple (can sub one mango or mix the two)
  • 1 fresh pepper such as jalapeño or serrano, minced* (remove the seeds to cut back on the heat)
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • ½ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ tablespoon toasted ground cumin (or pre-ground cumin)
  • ½ avocado, cut into small cubes
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch salt

Directions

Ingredients

The Process

Pre heat oven to 450 degrees.

1. Mix dry spices and olive oil together and rub onto fish.

2. Place fish on foil-lined baking sheet

3. Roast for approximately eight minutes (depending on oven and thickness of fish).

The Process

1. Toss pineapple with pepper, shallot, cilantro, lime juice, cumin and avocado.

2. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil to moisten and add salt to taste.

3. Serve over the fish or on the side.

Notes

Be careful when mincing a hot pepper. The spicy juices absorb easily into your skin and can sting. Rub a bit of olive oil on your hands before handling to create a barrier.
