Quick Italiana Inspired Salsa

If you're looking for a quick and light salsa to accompany your seafood or poultry, then this is it! I served it with grilled fish, and it was delicious. It has an Italian influence; and is perfect when you want to bring some culinary edge to a simple dish.

1 onion, chopped roughly
2 large tomatoes, sliced into cubes
1 large clove of garlic
1-2 tsp of italian tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
+ basil, to serve
Bring your roughly chopped onion, along with a generous drizzle of oil, to high heat in a pan. Coat the onion in the oil, and add the garlic. Stir for 2 minutes, and then add the tomatoes. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Add about 1-2 tsp of italian tomato paste, and then add enough sugar to reduce the acidity. Stir through well. You can also stir through some chopped basil, if you desire. Serve generously with grilled fish or chicken.

  1. tomatoes should be used now while in season in everything.....

  2. These are exactly the type of light concoctions that I like to whip up...especially when the tomatoes are fresh ;o)

    Have a great day,

  10. Your recipe is attuned with my surroundings .. I am at Lake Como, by the lake itlsef, trying to catch "la redde" (wi fi) although it is not easy .. it comes and goes!

  11. Our tomatoes are coming in which hopefully means, I end up with an over abundance. Then, I can make this recipe and many others that have been tempting me.

  12. I have been collecting salsa recipes. They are great to throw together when one wants to make a dish special.

    I recently made a pepper sauce with tomatoes and red peppers and it was delicious. Better, it could be used on most any dish.
