Easy-Peasy Recipe for Tropical Fruit Salsa

About two weekends ago, Mom (Ali) and I went to Rehoboth Beach, DE for a few days as a sort of "last hurrah" before the end of summer. While I know summer doesn't officially end until September 22nd, both Mom and I substitute teach in Loudoun County, so for us, summer ended right after Labor Day! 

Anywho, while we were there, we ate at a popular Rehoboth dinner spot called "Big Fish Grill." We almost always eat at "Big Fish" while visiting Rehoboth. Normally we're picky about eating at seafood restaurants (hmm, wonder why?!?!), but the fish at "Big Fish" is fresh and consistently good. 

I always get the pecan-encrusted halibut. Mom ordered the rockfish this time, and unfortunately, she didn't care for it. However, we both love, love, love the fresh, "tropical" fruit salsa that they serve with nearly all their meals. 

This week, I tried my hand at recreating the salsa, and I was really happy with the results. It's ridiculously simple - you only need the fruit and some red onion! Here's what I used: 

Easy Peasy Tropical Fruit Salsa
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1/2 mango (or less)  
  • 6 - 10 chunks of pineapple (the kind that you buy fresh in the produce section) 
  • few slices of red onion 
I chopped each ingredient very finely and combined them together. I let it set in the fridge for a few hours before serving it chilled with swordfish (any fresh fish would do, but I think this salsa works particularly well with meaty, white fish like sword, wahoo, halibut, etc.) 

The red onion keeps the salsa from being overly sweet. I would definitely suggest making this at least a few hours or even a day ahead of time to let the flavor of the onion seep into the fruit.

Keep in mind that you might need more or less of the ingredients listed depending on the amount of people who will be eating! The measurements I provided above made enough for three servings. 

Feel free to add any other fruits, veggies, herbs or spices to this salsa. I know my Mom (Ali) likes to add a bit of olive oil and cilantro to hers. A bit of lemon juice is nice, too. 

If you try this recipe, leave a comment and let us know how you like it - or share your own recipes for salsas/toppings!

Rain, Rain, Go Away...(a little update)

Well, we've had a bit of a washout here at Jumbo Seafood this weekend!

 Yesterday (Friday) we packed up early (and not a moment too soon!) before the big storm hit. Sorry if you missed us! We usually stay open until around 7pm each evening (except for Sundays), but we had heard rumors of 60 mph winds and golf ball sized hail - needless to say, we got the heck outta dodge! 
Today (Saturday) was better, though we weren't anticipating a full day of fairly steady rain. Despite the less-than-stellar weather, sales were successful! Here's an update on our inventory: 

  • THE ONLY FISH THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE TOMORROW IS SALMON, AND THERE'S ONLY A LITTLE BIT LEFT! If you're reading this and you'd like some salmon for tomorrow, it's best that you CALL (304-728-0930) or get to the stand as close to 10am as possible! 
  • D'oh! I forgot to mention that we DO have SELECT OYSTERS (North Carolina) in the pint jar this weekend!
  • We're RUNNING LOW on Jumbo Lump Crabmeat, but we still have a decent stock of Lump Crabmeat available! 
  • We also have a decent stock of scallops and soft-shells -  and an abundance of shrimp!
  • Amish Heirloom tomatoes are here! If you've never tried this type of tomato, you really should! It has very low acid and a thin skin, making it perfect to slice and eat on the spot, and they're especially good when marinated or served with fresh mozzarella and basil (Caprese salad is one of my most favorite things, if you couldn't tell!) 
Anywho, I hope this update helps you decide what you're going to fix for Sunday dinner! : ) 

PS - Did anyone else see the beautiful rainbow yesterday? Here are a couple pictures I took. Sorry for the poor quality - they were snapped with the camera on my phone!

They also carry fresh honey & flowers, seasonal produce (in the Fall, for instance, they have gourds, neck pumpkins, and a wide variety of apples) and beeswax candles (tapers and decorative moulds)

And there you have it! See you tomorrow, and remember - if you want fish, come as early as possible or CALL US at (304) 728-0930! Thanks!

A Little Update...

Good Morning, Everyone! 
I wanted to give you a quick update as to what we have left for this hot & sticky Sunday. 

We are SOLD OUT of all fish! Sorry! Unfortunately, we didn't have to much to begin with on Friday, and it went as quickly as usual. 

As of right now (8/16/09, 11 am), we still have - 
  • shrimp in 3 sizes/prices
  • scallops
  • lump crabmeat 
  • soft shell crabs
  • beautiful produce and sunflowers from Hidden Creek Apiary (Les' family's farm)
  •   
My recommendations for today are the tomatoes (served with some fresh mozzarella & basil) and the crabmeat (can't beat crabcakes for Sunday dinner!) 

Hope to see you!
