Christmas recipes with tropical fruit: savory dishes

Can you imagine a lamb accompanied by custard apple? Some mango chicken wings? An avocado pesto? They are perfect recipes for Christmas with an extra flavor: they all contain some of the tropical fruits that we produce and distribute at Frutas Fajardo.

Although it is common to come across a thousand salty recipes with avocado as the protagonist, today we are here to offer you several proposals with mango and cherimoya, which cannot be left behind because they provide a sweet flavor that is incredible with meat and fish.

We start with the avocado: but this time we chose a less conventional recipe.

Pasta with avocado pesto

Very different from traditional basil pesto, this avocado pesto recipe has a creaminess and texture that will make you addicted. It is perfect as an accompaniment to any type of pasta, but also by itself, because its flavor is exquisite.

What do you need? Direct to the Palate has the recipe:

Short dry pasta type serpentini 250 g Ripe avocado 1 Clove of garlic 1 Red onion 0.5 bunch of fresh cilantro 1 Extra virgin olive oil 30 ml Salt Ground black pepper

Mango Chicken Wings

Most of the time we strive to make super elaborate recipes and we forget that the key is in the raw material. Not many ingredients are needed to make this delicious dish that can brighten up any holiday.

We found this chicken wings with mango at Fogón de Oma.

We have another version in Delirious Kitchen: with habanero sauce.

Lamb with custard apple sauce

We cannot deny that lamb is delicious in any of its versions: grilled, stewed, grilled... and that its own juice is a real delicatessen. But today we come to propose something different thanks to the wonderful recipe book by Ana Garin Pineda.

To make this sauce you will need:

1 onion
1 custard apple
1 microwave roast potato
1 glass of white wine
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 pinch of cumin powder
Salt, oil and pepper
