Author Notes: When we were recently in Ecuador, my husband tried a chicken dish that was cooked in a curry sauce and topped with marinated apple chunks. I am just kicking myself that I didn't try it, but that's how life goes sometimes. So now I find myself trying to recreate something I didn't try myself. No problem. Right. After many attempts, this is a rendition that I've turned into a raw dish that could go over chicken or fish. I switched to peaches for texture reasons, and it seemed to go better with the approach I took to the ingredients. It's a little unusual, and I'd love to hear what others think of it!TheWimpyVegetarian

Makes enough for 4 toppings

Macerating Liquid

  • 4 White peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup sweet white wine (I used a Gewurtraminer)
  • 1/8 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (unseasoned)

Coconut Curry Drizzle Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon peeled, finely grated, fresh gingeroot
  • pinch Kosher salt
  1. Combine all the macerating ingredients except the peaches. Stir to mix well. Add the sliced peaches and macerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Make the drizzle by combining all the drizzle ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk well to completely mix.
  3. There are at least a couple serving suggestions for this dish: 1) Remove the peaches from the Macerating Liquid and either place them on the side of chicken, pork, or a hearty fish like halibut or snapper, and drizzle well with the Coconut Curry Drizzle Sauce; or 2) Remove the peaches from the Macerating Liquid and toss in the Coconut Curry Drizzle Sauce. Spoon over chicken, pork or fish. Either way, enjoy!!

Thanks so much gingerroot! The drizzle sauce is also great with grilled chicken. I make chicken-k-bobs the other night, threw this sauce together, and drizzled it all over the chicken. Delish!
