4 Recipes to Celebrate Peach Month
As you may already know, August is national peach month; a time to indulge in this juicy fruit full of vitamins. It has now become not only a snack or a dessert but an essential ingredient to many recipes. Check out some of the recipes in which this favorite fruit offers its refreshing flavor to summer menus.
Salmon with Peach Mango Salsa
With its perfect combination of sweet and sour, mango complements the rich taste of the peach in this restaurant inspired dish. This planked salmon is not only very easy to make, but also a great meal to serve your guests at a party.
For the Salsa, mix some lime juice, pure bee honey, and salt, and then toss with mango, peach and bell pepper mix. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile, rub some brown sugar over the salmon and grill it for 30 to 35 minutes and then serve with the salsa.
Peach, Goat Cheese and rocket Leaves Pizza
The sweetness of the peach, the richness of the cheese, and the bright and tart accents of
Rocket Leaves and balsamic vinegar make a perfect summer light meal. This pizza just tastes as amazing as it looks.
Start by heating up 2/3 cup of Aceto Balsamico Di Modena and 2 teaspoons of brown sugar for 12 to 16 minutes until reduced by half then cool at room temperature.
Meanwhile heat the oven to 220°C, then place the pizza dough on the pan and press evenly to the edges of the pan, using 1 tablespoon of canola oil in your hands. Brush another tablespoon of canola oil on top of the dough and bake for 6 to 7 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Place the peaches and red onion evenly on the crust and leave it in the oven for 10 to 12 more minutes or until edges are golden brown. Finally, remove it from the oven and sprinkle with cheese and rocket leaves. Drizzle it with the balsamic syrup and grab yourself a slice. Or maybe, um, four!
The idea of soup during summer sounds almost unbearable, but that’s not the case for gazpacho soup. Cold or hot, it’s always a good time to serve this refreshing Spanish soup. And guess what, you can make it even more refreshing by substituting peaches for tomatoes.
Grilled Peaches with Dukkah and Blueberries
Mixing three things that always make everything better, this is the ultimate combination! What you get here is a perfect dish.
If you don’t already know what Dukkah is, it’s an Egyptian blend of pistachios, almonds, cumin, caraway, and coriander that you can easily make. And when combined with a grilled ripe peach, you’ll have a superlative summer experience, especially with freshly whipped cream and scattered blueberries. The result is reminiscent of peach pie without the crust, warm and yielding, with just a hint of char.
This refreshing fruit can now be used in any kind of meal from appetizers, main courses and desserts. How are you celebrating peach month? Share your favorite peach recipe with us.
