City Palate Recipe: Asako Kimchi

Tomato de Arbol Salsa

Mar/Apr 2008
Andres at More Than Mangos (a terrific source for unusual and hard-to-find exotic and tropical fruits) provided his aunt’s recipe for this salsa made with tamarillos (tomato tree fruit). It’s quite hot and a little goes a long way.

6 to 8 tamarillos
6 - 8 serrano chiles, seeded and chopped
6 green onions, chopped
1/4 c. water
Fresh lemon or lime juice
Fresh cilantro
Salt
Pinch of sugar

Boil tamarillos for 10 to 15 minutes until soft. Drain, cool slightly and peel. Put in a blender with chiles, green onions, water, a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice and a little fresh cilantro. Season to taste with salt and sugar. Excellent with grilled chicken or tuna.
