Husk Cherry Salsa on Fish Tacos


At farmers market we get asked a lot, "What else can I do with husk cherries?" 

Aside from casual snacking they make a great salsa. Yes, you can grab a bag of chips and scoop but I think husk cherry salsa is really nice on fish tacos. 

Inspired in part by a Saturday farmers market regular and the other part by my local grocery store (the New Egypt Marketplace) who has a fresh fish bar every weekend, I grabbed some shrimp and some panko bread crumbs and hustled my way home. 

I panko breaded and fried the shrimp (Yum!). 

And for the salsa, this is a small recipe because...quite frankly who wants to peel husk cherries for hours upon hours.  With that said the ingredient amounts are very small.

Husk Cherry Salsa
1 pint husk cherries
1/4 jalapeno pepper
1/4 bell pepper, any color is fine but I used purple,
1/4 onion
1/4 of a lime, squeeze for juice
salt

Peel the husk cherries.  Add them to a food processor along with chopped jalapeno and bell pepper, chopped onion, lime juice and salt. Pulse a few times to chop and combine.

Add to your fish tacos...grab an adult beverage perhaps and enjoy!
