Although these simply look like green tomatoes, tomatillos are in fact not part of the tomato family - they are cousins of the gooseberry. As a result, they are zingy and tangy and make the perfect green salsa.
Just blitz these up, add finely diced white onion, fresh coriander and green chilli and serve with tacos, grilled meats or fish.

Ingredients: Green tomatillos, water, salt, sugar, citric acid, spices
So excited to find these in the UK. A true taste of Mexico which I’ve really missed. Thanks for stocking them SF.
I'm buying more of these after loving the chutney Ben recommends as part of the Fish Tacos recipe. Whilst the green colour of the salsa they produce may not be what we're used to from a conventional red tomato salsa, don't let this put you off as the flavour is vibrant and zesty. Now we are finding ourselves compelled to make this salsa as a condiment to go with anything mexican (even just for dipping tortillas) as it is so fresh and authentic - tasting.
