Crab Pineapple Salsa

Sharing is caring!

I have something new today – and guess what!!!

It’s not a burger.

It’s Crab Pineapple Salsa.
Crab Pineapple SalsaIt’s not your typical salsa…but it’s so damn good.

Summery, fresh and light.


A little hot.    <—- I love hot, FYI.

I put some serrano in there for a kick. What? You knew I would.

I do have a way with flavor; can’t help it. It’s like I can taste shit before I even really taste it and it drives me to make whatever it is I’m concocting in my head. Nine times out of ten it works out. Ok, well maybe eight times out of ten.

It’s not a big secret that seafood and fruit pair well. It’s how you pull all of the ingredients together that make it awesome.

Make this for your next cookout and your guests will love you. Or just make it because you want to. Food never needs a reason to be made.

    Here’s what I love about this, it looks absolutely amazing, and my crab loving husband is very anti fruit in anything. SO that means that I can make it and eat it all myself!!

    Here’s the thing.. I don’t care for pineapple. So, why am I commenting? Because the love of my life thinks pineapple is the bomb. And she loves crab! I’m making this for her, and if I don’t get laid — it’s all your fucking fault! (Beautiful recipe, Shea!)
