Six extraordinary strawberry recipes.

Strawberries are most commonly used to make jams, yogurts, sauces and ice cream. A chocolate-covered berry dessert is typical but far from what truly makes this fruit a powerhouse ingredient.

We figured there must be more to this underused fruit and went on a hunt for unusual strawberry dishes. Here are the most delicious six.

1) Strawberry Ceviche

The Ceviche is turning out to be one of the most trendy dishes for 2015. This perfectly summerly seafood dish is originally from Latin America and is slowly but surely taking over the rest of the world.

Ingredients:

Strawberries, fresh fish fillet or shrimp, lime juice, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce, fleur de sel, black pepper, honey, avocado.

2) Pickled green strawberries

Several trends are highlighted in this recipe – the use of underripe strawberries and „pickling“, (the fermentation of fruit or vegetables in brine or vinegar).

Ingredients:

Green strawberries, black pepper, bay leaf, celery seeds, caraway seeds, yellow mustard seeds, chili flakes, apple vinegar, honey, water, coarse sea salt.
