Cod with Strawberry Salsa

Cod with Strawberry Salsa

I got a few too many strawberries and I needed to use them. I was thinking that a white fish with a strawberry salsa would be nice. At first I was going to go with a more standard salsa with jalapeno, cumin and cilantro but then I thought that balsamic vinegar goes well with strawberries. I ended up with a strawberry and balsamic vinegar salsa to go with the fish which turned out to be cod. There is still a lot of fresh local asparagus so I finished the meal off with some of that. Nothing says Spring like asparagus and strawberries! It turned out to be a really nice light and fresh lunch.

Ingredients:
1 fillet cod (or any white fish)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon mint (chopped)
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup strawberries (trimmed and chopped)

Directions:
1. Season the cod with salt and pepper.
2. Broil the cod until cooked and flaky, about 6-9 minutes.
3. Mix the mint, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, honey and black pepper.
4. Toss with the strawberries with the dressing to coat.
5. Serve the cod with the strawberry salsa.

Fish with strawberries is a good combination. We had grilled halibut with strawberry jelly glaze once and people loved it.

The strawberry salsa is a great idea!

Fish with strawberries and strawberry salsa sounds weird to say the least :)
Balsamic strawberries are one of the better things in life though, especially with some black pepper added, so I can believe this was good.

You have a lot of unorthodox food here which of course is great since it gives for some new ideas.

Interesting use of strawberries. I've had strawberry chicken before...was kind of like sweet and sour. This fish looks yummy.

Hi Kevin
Wow - I would never have thought of a strawberry salsa with white fish and I'm intrigued by this. And of course, I love the colour :) I might try this idea with tuna steaks or something similar - thanks for the inspiration, and thanks very much for taking part in WTSIM this month!

Zita said...

Aww, looks so fresh and great idea :)

Well, blueberries cooked with a tiny bit of sugar, good balsamic and a healthy shot of ground black pepper and served over grilled salmon is heaven on a plate. This strawberry/cod dish is positively gorgeous!! Who sez strawberries have to be sweet???
