Mango Salsa and Sosaties - Recipe

This Mango Salsa with spicy Pork & Pineapple skewers is the perfect simple summer family or entertaining meal. Or braai meal as we would call it here. But if you’re not a meat eater, you can bulk up the salsa with some black beans and avocado to turn it from a side into a delicious filling and nutritious dish.

Ingredients:

Mango Salsa
250 grams Baby Tomatoes (you can use any size or variety of tomatoes) Chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Red Onion Finely Chopped
1 Green pepper Deseeded and finely chopped
1 Jalapeno chilli (red or green)* Deseeded and finely chopped
2 Large Mangoes Cubed
100 – 200 grams Corn Kernels Fresh cooked, or from a can
2 Tbsp Fresh Coriander or Parsley Finely chopped
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Spicy Pork & Pineapple Skewers
400 grams Pork Fillet Cubed
180 grams Fresh Pineapple Cubed
3 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 tbsp Lemon Juice
250 ml Habanero & Pineapple Salsa* or any other chilli sauce of your choice

Method

Spicy Pork & Pineapple Skewers
Cube the pork and pineapple to similar sizes, approx. 2cm in size. Place the cubes onto skewers, alternating the pork and pineapple

Add the olive oil to a dish, then place the skewers in the dish. Season the meat with salt and pepper on all sides, then squeeze or pour over the lemon juice
As an optional extra I added some leftover red onion to the dish for flavour, but this is not necessary
Pour the chilli sauce over the meat, rotate the skewers so that they're evenly covered with the sauce, then cover the dish with a lid, tea towel or plastic wrap and leave to marinate for at least 1 – 2 hours

Tip: If the chilli sauce you are using is super hot/spicy and you would like to reduce the heat a bit, add additional olive oil to the marinade
The skewers can be cooked on the braai/bbq or on a griddle pan. Heat the pan, brush with a little oil then cook the skewers around 2 minutes a side (roughly 10 minutes in all). If using pork, make sure that it is cooked through, but do not overcook. This marinade, including the lemon juice, makes the meat extremely tender and it could fall off the skewers so take care when turning/rotating

Serve with some finely chopped coriander or parsley and some sour cream if you wish


Mango Salsa
Prep the ingredients. If using baby tomatoes, just quarter or halve them. If using large tomatoes, chop into around 1cm pieces. Attempt to remove as much of the seeds/juice from the tomatoes as they release while chopping. Everything else should be chopped fine. The mange can be cut into around 1 cm pieces
Add the chopped tomatoes to a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add all the other chopped ingredients, followed by the lemon juice, mix and taste to see if it needs more seasoning

Serve chilled with your favourite corn chips

NOTES
*Adjust to your heat/spice preference
