Black Beans Salsa

Posted on

Black Bean Salsa … great served with any seared or grilled fish or chicken … I served it with my Seared Spiced Salmon Steaks 😉

The ingredients for the Black Bean Salsa …. mix all up together with lemon juice, EOO and season with fine sea salt


Ingredients :

½ cup dried black beans, soaked overnight in cold water (may substitute with canned beans)

3 firm, medium sized tomatoes, deseeded and diced

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped (add more if you want more spice)

2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

1 medium red onion, chopped

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

juice from 2 limes 

¼ tsp fine sea-salt

Methods : 

  • Drain and rinse the beans in plenty of cold water, put them in a saucepan with enough water to cover and bring to boil rapidly for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and simmer for further 30 minutes until tender  or for further 15 – 20 minutes if you like a bit of bite in the beans rather then too tender
  • Drain and set aside to allow to cool completely then add to the rest of the other ingredients
  • Mix well and allow salsa to stand, covered, for several hours to allow the flavours to develop
