Strawberry season is a glorious time for me! Not only do I love this fresh berry, but I love that it means spring is here and summer is super close. I tend to buy LOTS of strawberries at once and then eat them with all my meals and snacks. Thus, the discovery of this recipe was a sweet find. The strawberry salsa includes so many flavors that are perfect for strawberries (balsamic vinegar and lime) and even more perfect to top off a delicious piece of fish. I loved how it tasted so light and fresh. I usually find cod to be a less flavorful fish, but when it is paired with this strawberry salsa there is nothing boring about the flavor!
Cod with Strawberry Salsa
Source: Adapted from the California Strawberry Commission
2 4-oz. fillets cod (or any white fish)
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley (chopped)
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cup strawberries (trimmed and chopped)
To prepare the salsa mix the parsley, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, honey and black pepper. Toss the strawberries with the dressing to coat. Set aside and allow flavors to meld while preparing the cod. Season the cod with salt and pepper. Broil the cod until cooked and flaky, about 6-9 minutes. Serve the cod topped with the strawberry salsa.
