Papaya Ketchup

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Cadillacgirl

Another recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks - Marcus Samuelsson! This is one I haven't tried yet as I haven't seen any nice ripe papayas yet, but I think it sounds awesome! He says it goes good with grilled shrimp or chicken and with roti.

Made for Zaar World Tour 8. After an initial strange taste, the sauce actually became quite morish and was very nice with plain corn chips. I have sooo much left over, so I think I might experiment with it during the week. Thanks for sharing such an interesting idea.
