I thought I would quickly share what I had for dinner tonight , it was quick, easy, and another meal in a continuing streak of really good dinners over the past week.
May I Present:
Black Bean-Banana (oh I went there) Salsa:
the black beans are hiding underneath (bad mixing on my part, Doh!)
~2 semi green banana’s, diced
~1 small red onion, chopped
~a genrous handful of cilantro, chopped
~1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
~1-2 jalepenos (depending on your spice tolerance), seeded and chopped
~1 tsp. cumin
~chilli powder, cayeanne pepper to taste
~juice of 1/2 a lime
Mix all ingredients into a bowl and refrigerate for atleast 3o mins. or until cold. Serve over tillapia steaks, cod, or even salmon. I had tillapia and it was FANtastic!
I was a little hesistant to have banana with such savory flavors, but with a little research I learned that banana is frequently used in Latin American and Spanish dishes with savory accompaniments.
I’m always up for trying new things!
Have any unique ingredient pairings? Please share!
