Tomato Salsa With Tamarind Dressing
As the weather turns warmer and finally cooking on the bbq is possible again, I'll be posting salsa recipes on a very regular basis. I came up with this salsa for my salmon fish cakes instead of serving them with any kind of sauce. It's refreshing and extremely easy to make. Please be creative and add in herbs and spices you think that might work with the salsa.
Serves 4 as a side dish
5 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
small bunch of chives, chopped
small bunch of coriander, chopped
1 chili, chopped
Place all chopped ingredients in a bowl.
for the dressing;
4 tbs of tamarind paste
2 tbs of castor sugar
juice of 1 lime
dash of fish sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Finishing touch for the dressing..
Pour dressing over and mix well. Serve this with your choice of meat or fish.
