Tomatillos look like small green tomatoes surrounded by a papery husk. They’re common in Mexican cuisine, and their refreshing flavor is great either raw or cooked.
For a different spice combination, try rubbing the fish with Old Bay Seasoning. And for other salad combinations, try chickpeas or red beans in place of the black beans, and red tomato or cucumber in place
f the tomatillo.

As I was making this, I was having reservations about having tried it. Like others, I had never used tomatillos and also my husband and I don't care for cilantro, but the flavors were wonderful. I cooked Black Turtle Beans using FC's Chickpeas with Bay Leaves and Herbs as a guide. I like the idea of adding tomatoes and corn to the salsa. All in all, this is a keeper. Will make again.
Great recipe! This one is a keeper for sure.
Delicious, fresh meal for summertime! I hadn't cooked with tomatillos before, and they were the perfect addition to this salsa. Thanks for another weeknight favorite!
