Prep Time:  30 minutes
Bake Time:  20 minutes

28 large raw shrimp (about 1 1/2 pounds), deveined and peeled
1/3 cup cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups flaked sweetened coconut
cooking spray
1/2 to 3/4 cup Hatch Chile & Pineapple Salsa

*Preheat oven to 400°. To prepare shrimp, rinse  in cold water; drain on paper towels until dry. Combine cornstarch, salt, and red pepper in a shallow dish; stir with a whisk. Place the egg whites in a medium bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium-high speed until frothy (about 2 minutes). Place coconut in a shallow dish. Working with one shrimp at a time, dredge in cornstarch mixture. Dip in egg white; dredge in coconut, pressing gently with fingers. Place shrimp on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat the procedure with remaining shrimp, cornstarch mixture, egg white, and coconut. Lightly coat shrimp with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until shrimp are done, turning after 10  minutes. Serve with Hatch Chile & Pineapple Salsa spooned over each shrimp. Serves 4-6.

*If you prefer to grill these shrimp, place on pre-heated grill (medium-high) and grill 10 minutes per side, or until shrimp turns pink and coconut is lightly toasted.

This recipe is also fantastic with our Apricot & Orange Marmalade and Red Hot Jalapeno Jelly!

Chicken Quesadillas with Fischer & Wieser Artichoke & Olive Salsa

Quesadillas with artichokes and olives flavoring them are a little unusual–but great! Add guacamole on shredded lettuce and you’ve got yourself a great little light meal.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time:  20 minutes

12 white corn tortillas
5 grilled or baked chicken breasts, sliced into thin slices
1 pound shredded Quesadilla cheese, or substitute Monterey Jack
2 cups Fischer & Wieser Artichoke & Olive Salsa
canola oil

Lay the corn tortillas on a baking sheet. Arrange some of the chicken slices on half of each tortilla. Scatter 1/3 cup of the shredded cheese over the chicken on each tortilla. Spoon some of the Fischer & Wieser Artichoke & Olive Salsa over the cheese. Fold the top of the tortillas over the filling. Heat a thin glaze of canola oil in a large skillet or flat griddle-grill. When oil is medium hot, cook the quesadillas until the cheese has melted and tortillas are slightly browned, turning once with a wide metal spatula. Smash the top of the tortilla to flatten slightly when turned. To serve, cut each quesadilla into two wedges. Arrange on a platter and serve hot with more Fischer & Wieser Artichoke & Olive Salsa on the side. Serves 6.

Das Peach Haus® Peach Salsa Gazpacho

Here’s a great chilled soup that is ready in a flash. Prepare the tortilla strips ahead of time and you have a great soup in ten minutes!

4 white corn tortillas
1-2 cups canola oil for frying, heated to 350 degrees
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 (16-ounce) jars Fischer & Wieser Das Peach Haus® Peach Salsa, well chilled
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup minced cilantro

Place the tortillas in a stack. Using a sharp knife, cut the stack in half, then stack the cut halves together. Cut the tortillas into 1/4-inch wide strips. Fry the tortilla strips in heated canola oil until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper towels. Toss with salt to season. Pour the Fischer & Wieser Das Peach Haus® Salsa into blender and puree until smooth. To serve, pour 8 ounces (1 cup) of the pureed salsa into four shallow soup plates (clear glass looks great!). Place two tablespoons of the sour cream in the center of each serving. Scatter some of the tortilla strips over the sour cream. Garnish each bowl with 1 tablespoon of the minced cilantro, scattering it over the entire bowl. Serve at once and enjoy a refreshing cool breeze in a bowl. Serves 4
