I love to make salsas. They are so easy. A salsa can really elevate an entree above the ordinary and help bring the flavors of a dish together. Recently I cooked some flounder filets, prepared very simply by lightly dusting with a mixture of flour and cornmeal then pan frying in a little butter and olive oil. A very ordinary way to quickly cook fish fillets. But to go along with it, I made this salsa using grapefruit and avocado.
My original intention was to have fish tacos, that’s why I made the salsa. As I finished making it, however, I tasted it, and WOW, my taste buds woke up and started to sing!…it was fabulous and I didn’t want it to get lost in a taco. I just loved the way the citrus paired with the avocado. So I served it as an accompaniment to the flounder, along with a vegetable and a salad. I know I will be making this salsa again very soon, I wanted to eat it by the bowlful!
