This was my first time making salsa.
If you make this, don't be shy with the salt. I have been trying to cut back on sodium, but this isn't the dish to do that.
I also went very light on the jalapenos and the juice, and it was kind of bland.
Don't be like me.
What I used:
Half of a red onion
The juice of two limes
3 tomatoes (could have used one more)
10 oz of pre-cooked shrimp
Jalapenos. At least 2 or 3 tablespoons, no matter how much of a wuss you are. I used 4, yes 4 single jalapenos. For shame.
I used this much cilantro:
Don't forget the shrimp in the freezer like I did, or you'll spend the time you're cutting up the produce trying to thaw out the shrimp in lukewarm water.
Quarter the tomatoes and onions, throw them in a food processor (unless you're a hardcore chopper), with the juice of the 2 limes, the cilantro, and salt. Be generous with the salt, to your liking.
Add the shrimp and jalapenos and blend well. I learned my lesson in pulsing shrimp, so I made sure everything was well and blended before I threw them in there.
Just keep taste testing, and make sure your spices are to your liking.
Stick it in the fridge for at least an hour.
It went nicely with Scott's Favorite Fajitas.
I miss tortillas :(
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
