Get Creative With Strawberries!

Strawberries have always been a favorite ingredient for chefs across the globe – especially when it comes to creating desserts. But in recent years, culinary professionals are using strawberries in innovative ways that extend beyond dessert and breakfast and are featured in dishes across the menu, all day and all year.

Here are some chef-inspired ideas for using strawberries that may inspire you in your everyday meal planning. It’s all about reinventing with strawberries and adding instant appeal to any dish!

A strawberry can act like a tomato

Try substituting strawberries for tomatoes. The results will amaze you. Consider a strawberry salsa with seafood dishes, or a Caprese salad made with fresh mozzarella and strawberries. Transform a grilled cheese-and-tomato sandwich into a panino with strawberries and Taleggio cheese.

Strawberries are salad friendly

To create fresh twists on classic dressings, use puréed strawberries to stand in for some or all of the vinegar. They’ll add tangy sweetness, body and aromatic appeal. Sliced, diced or whole, strawberries also bring a splash of contrasting color) to the plate.

Strawberries play well with cured and smoked foods

The bright, tangy flavor of strawberries makes a perfect foil for smoked salmon and cured meats, such as prosciutto, jamón serrano and smoked pork chops. Their sweet acidity also complements today’s popular crudo (raw fish) dishes.

Strawberries pair perfectly with proteins

Think about richer meats and firm-fleshed fish that are often seasoned with fruity sauces: pork with apples, duck with orange sauce, baked ham with pineapple, chicken with citrus, grilled salmon with mango salsa. Try making fresh strawberry salsas or chutneys for these items. Or glaze them with sauces made by simmering fresh or frozen strawberries with ingredients like wine or fruit juice. Add fresh strawberries as a finishing touch for bright flavor and color.

Roasting strawberries concentrates their flavor

Roast strawberries quickly in a hot oven to make a full flavored “jam” that can be used as a sweet or savory sauce or dressing base, condiment or sandwich ingredient (think cranberry sauce).

Frozen strawberries can be super ice cubes

Add frozen strawberries, instead of ice, directly to blender drinks. You’ll add flavor, nutritional value, color and frosty appeal.
