Jerked Pineapple Salsa


This is one side dish that I use quite often to accompany either chicken or seafood.

You can make it in a Mojito Style by adding mint, or Southwestern by adding Cilantro and changing the blacken to my Southwest Blend.

I even kick up the "afterburn" by adding some of my Butt Kickin' Barbecue Sauce!



  • 1/2 Large Fresh Pineapple
  • 1 Large Habanero Chile Pepper, seeded, and minced fine.
  • 2 Large Jalapeno Chile Peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 Large Red Bell Pepper, minced
  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice Concentrate
  • 1 Tablespoon Butt Kickin' Blacken, Jamaican Jerk
  • 1/4 Cup Rum, optional
  • 1/4 Cup Butt Kickin' Barbecue Sauce, optional

1. Prepare the pineapple by first cutting the top and bottom off, then stand it on end and trim the skin and the eyes.

Cut the pineapple in half, lengthwise, then cut one half into half again. Remove the core from both quarters.

Slice the pineapple lengthwise into slices a little over 1/8" thick, then slice each of these pieces into little strips. Mince these and place in a bowl.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix well. The addition of my BBQ Sauce creates some extra heat, and helps to thicken the sauce.

3. This is best prepared a day ahead which will give it enough time for the flavors to blend.
