Prep Time: 10 minutes, excluding marinating time
Servings: 4
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
  • 5ml - fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 - garlic cloves, crushed
  • 30ml - Italian parsley, chopped
  • 200g - fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 10ml - balsamic vinegar
  • 30ml - olive oil
  • 30ml - freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 10ml - castor sugar
  • - freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 - tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 - red chilli, chopped
  • four - 200g steaks
  • - a bunch of spring onions, chopped (only to the bottom-most white part)
  • 30ml - fresh mint leaves, chopped
The flavours in this cheeky salsa are surprisingly delicate. A young, fruity red wine will complement the juicy meat without overshadowing the flavour of the strawberries.

1 Prepare the salsa: Place the strawberries, castor sugar and balsamic vinegar in a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly and leave to stand for at least half an hour to allow the flavours to develop. Add the remaining salsa ingredients just before you serve the steak.

2 Mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, rosemary and black pepper. Rub this over the steak and leave the meat to marinate for at least half an hour, but preferably longer.

3 Grill the steak over medium coals or in a griddle pan until cooked as desired and serve immediately with the strawberry salsa.
