Poached Eggs with Peach Salsa

Jul 20, 2009 by

Stock salsa 

Eggs with salsa was a new concept for me. I lived much of my life without ever hearing of salsa—all those wasted years! It offers unlimited variety and is the perfect partner to lots of foods. Salsa with eggs is such a great idea for an inexpensive, super easy, super quick, super healthy meal. It’s tasty as well, of course, and makes for an impressive and appetitizing presentation.

Rub or spray a little olive oil in small dishes for poaching eggs. I used little glass dishes. My mom has special stainless steel ones. Crack an egg (truly free range farm egg if you can get it) in each dish. Place the dishes in a large skillet and fill it up with water up to about half way up the dishes. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce heat to slow boil and cover the pan. Allow to cook slowly until eggs are done to taste. Remove pans carefully from the water and remove eggs with a rubber spatula. Serve hot with the salsa.

1 C fresh peaches, peeled and finely chopped

¼ C red onions, chopped

¼ C yellow or green pepper, chopped

1 T lime juice

2 t (or more) fresh cilantro

Cayenne pepper to taste

Stir all ingredients together. Makes 2 cups. Keeps a few days.

That salsa recipe sounds great.  I'm definitely going to be giving it a go, but probably chop in a nice spicy chilli instead of the cayenne. However, I see the recipe is from one of Cordain's books. In the latest version of the book, he no longer recommends canola oil.  He says that for cooking, the only oil he recommends now is olive oil.  You'll find this in the book, but also in the preface.

 @ThePaleoGut Thanks so much for your comment. I went in and changed the oil in the recipe! I also no longer recommend canola oil! I think coconut oil would be OK along with olive oil. I also agree with using a chili pepper (serrano or jalapeno) rather than cayenne powder. I hadn't made this recipe in ages. Nice to be reminded. Also I am experimenting with fermented salsas using whey and might see if I can get that to work with this one.

 @Anna Migeon I'd love so see some fermented salsa recipes if you create some and want to share.

@ThePaleoGut @Anna Migeon  I will work on that. I have tried Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions recipe (too oniony) and others found online. I'm sure this peach one can be adapted. Thanks for your interest.

Had some salsa with Fajitas this week. Don't know really how healthy this restaurant is, Appleby's, but the food was great. Supposed to be American. Could also get mashed potatoes instead of fries, so that is one point in their favor. I'm trying and I keep trying because you have done something to get me going in a better direction. What a good kid you are! Love Dad
