Pepino Melon Salsa

This South American fruit actually tastes like a cross between a cucumber and a nashi pear. Use the skins to present the salsa!

Recipe By: Green Eyed Girl (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/326)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min

Ingredients

Pepino melon 1
Courgette 10cm
Lemon a squeeze
Salt a pinch
Taco seasoning 1 tsp

Method

1
This is a pepino melon, it's about the size of a mango.
2
Cut the melon in half lengthways and remove the centre seeds.
3
Cut dice shaped cubes neatly out of the flesh (score a criss cross design with a knife and scoop out). Be careful not to pierce the skin. Put the cubes in a bowl and keep the skins to hold the finished salsa.
4
Cut the courgettte into the same size dice and add to the bowl.
5
Squeeze in some lemon, add a touch of salt and the taco seasoning and mix together.
6
Divide the salsa into two and fill the empty skins, piling high.
7
Sprinkle with a bit more taco seasoning and serve. I had this Old El Paso pack in the cupboard.

Tips & Note

This was a lovely lively starter. You can add any salad vegetables you like or have in the fridge.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.
 
Looking for an easy alternative to a traditional seafood boil? Need a simple recipe that works for both fresh or frozen seafood? If so, you need to see my Easy Seafood Pot recipe in episode 108 of POV Italian Cooking
 
Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
