Shrimp Fajita Salad
Perfect for a light summer lunch al fresco, this dish is ready in under 25 minutes!

Ingredients
Preparation time: 12 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.

1 medium red bell pepper (2–3 inches in diameter)
1 medium green bell pepper (2–3 inches in diameter)
1 medium onion (2–3 inches in diameter)
Nonstick cooking spray
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound cooked, peeled shrimp (50 count/pound)
¼ cup prepared salsa (mild or hot)
Juice of 1 lime
4 cups sliced iceberg lettuce
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
16 baked bite-size tortilla chips (use gluten-free corn chips for a gluten-free dish)
1 tablespoon hot salsa (optional)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 cup lettuce, 1 cup shrimp mixture

1 – Remove stems, seeds, and cores of the red and green peppers. Cut each into long thin strips. Peel onion, remove ends, and cut in half. Quarter onion and slice into thin pieces, separating them. Spray a large skillet with a thick layer of nonstick cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and garlic. Sauté quickly, then add peppers and onions, stirring frequently. Once the peppers are beginning to soften, add shrimp, salsa, and lime juice. Stir rapidly to heat ingredients evenly, about a minute. Remove mixture from heat. Spread 1 cup sliced lettuce on each of four shallow salad bowls or plates. Place ¼ of the shrimp mixture on each of the lettuce beds. Distribute cilantro equally on tops of each salad. Crush the tortilla chips in a small plastic bag with your hands to make irregularly sized crumbs. Sprinkle chip crumbs on top of each salad. Garnish each serving with a dab of hot salsa, if desired, and serve.

Kitchen Hint of the Day! WEDNESDAY

February 10, 2021 at 6:00 AM | Posted in Kitchen Hints | Leave a comment

What can I add to salsa to make it better………….

Adding a little fresh lime juice and some minced cilantro can wake up even the sleepiest of salsas, ushering back in the flavor of just-squeezed citrus and herbs that taste like they came from a living plant.

For Tomatoes – Fresh tomato salsa is ideally made with firm, fleshy tomatoes. You can of course make the salsa with any kind of tomato, but the firm ones like Romas or hothouse tomatoes will hold up the best.

And for the Peppers – The best hot peppers for salsa include Serrano peppers, Tabasco peppers and cayenne peppers. Serrano peppers are biting hot and do not need to be peeled or steamed before using, making them easy to add to salsas. Peppers reach 10 centimeters long, and turn orange, red or brown from a bright green when mature.

Healthy Salsa Recipes
Find healthy, delicious salsa recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Peach-Mango Salsa
Scoop this easy and healthy peach-mango salsa up with tortilla chips, serve it with grilled chicken, salmon or pork chops, or use it as a taco topper. It’s a versatile and vibrant addition to all sorts of meals………………………………

Green Tomato, Tomatillo and Lime Salsa Verde
Packed with tomatillo and tart lime flavor, this salsa is a great way to try out (or use up) any green tomatoes you have lying around. A versatile salsa, it’s perfect for dipping with tortillas or adding to a grilled fish taco. You might even want to try stirring it into sour cream for an enchilada sauce. For less of a spicy kick, omit the jalapeños……………………..

Roasted Three-Chile Salsa
This hot salsa recipe is typically made in a large molcajete (lava-rock mortar and pestle), but this recipe calls for a food processor or blender to make it easier. If you have a molcajete, feel free to use it instead. If you can’t find the bright orange manzano chiles, sold at Mexican grocery stores, double the amount of jalapeño (or for a hotter salsa, double the habanero)………………………..
