As soon as we came across Rachel Phipps’ lifestyle, foodie, and travel blog, we knew we were hooked. It sent us down the rabbit hole to The Glossy Guide, a beauty blog created by the British style maven and her best friend. From secret steals to haute products, she’s sharing some of her best insights here with us this week!
Salsa in England is something that comes thick and red in a jar, and you don’t find it in the refrigerator section. After moving to the West Coast and discovering delicious tubs of fresh and traditional salsa to scoop up with tortilla chips, I soon set out to make my own variations. This version was inspired by some shrimp tacos I had in Santa Monica.
- 2 Large Tomatos
- 1/2 White Onion
- Juice of 1 Lime
- Large Handful Fresh Cilantro
- 1/3 Cup Cooked & Peeled Shrimp
- 1 Red Chili
- Sea Salt
- Corn Tortilla Chips to serve
Chop the shrimp, tomato, red chill and onion up into very small pieces and toss into a bowl. Follow with the cilantro, finely chopped and the lime juice. Season with salt to taste and serve.
This recipe is really adaptable with different ingredients depending on your personal tastes; why not try adding chopped mango, using pickled jalapeños instead of red chili or switching out the white onion in favour of red?
