Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Whenever I make tacos, I try to include at least one salsa in the condiments and I often like to experiment with different kinds of salsas. For the last few weeks I have had this idea for some pork tacos in my head and I was thinking that a sweet and tangy pineapple salsa would be a great choice as it would help cut through the fatty pork. Despite the fact that grilling season is over I was dead set on grilling the pineapple for the salsa to as grilling it would caramelize it and bring out even more of its natural sweetness. Luckily, my trusty grill pan came to the rescue and I was able to defy the dark and gloomy weather that we have been having lately. After the grilled pineapple I kept the salsa fairly simple going with the pretty standard jalapeno peppers for heat, onions for bite, and cilantro and lime juice for extra freshness.

Oh wow, I love salsa - and pineapples are in season at the moment in South Africa! I imagine that this salsa would also work well with grilled fish?
