California Central Coast Recipes

Anaheim Chili Salsa

Anaheim Chili Salsa is our version of a traditional Mexican Pacific Coast salsa for seafood. Our recipe uses mild Anaheim peppers, a Jalapeno or two for a little heat, garlic, olive oil lime juice, fresh oregano and a bit of green onions. Lightly pureed together it's a stunning sauce that not only treats the eye but the palate as well. This salsa goes especially well with grilled seafood and Fish Tacos Romantic Table Style. ©2017, Anaheim Chili Salsa

A tip from Sue!

If rushed, prepare your ingredients in advance.

If you know youíll be rushed at cooking time, pre-measure out as many of the ingredients as you can, and arrange them by the cooking order of the recipe.

If itís going to be more than several minutes before you actually start making the dinner, be sure to cover the perishable ingredients with plastic wrap or place in containers and put them back in the refrigerator to hold until you are ready.
