Crying Tiger Salsa - Oh my!
To say I am obsessed with Crying Tiger Salsa would be putting it mildly.
This salsa is what all my salsa dreams are made of - and more.
It's fiery and cool at the same time and has the perfect amount of crunch.
Pop it on steak that's been bbq'd like we did, oh, oh, ohhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Crying Tiger Salsa
1 Lebanese cucumber - diced
1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes - diced
2 birdseye chilli - chopped
1 long green chilli - chopped
2 tbsp corriander - chopped
1 tbsp mint - chopped
4 shallots - finely diced
1 spring onion - finely sliced
Place all ingredients into bowl and set aside
Juice of 2 limes
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp palm sugar - chopped
1 tsp thin soy sauce
Whisk until sugar has dissolved and taste, the sauce should be slightly salty and sour, but with some underlying sweetness to balance it out.
Pour sauce over salsa and allow to macerate for 10 minutes.
