Moroccan Roasted Garlic Pesto and Cashew Pizza
Is it really August 14th?
Because it’s so cold here if feels more like October 14th.
I almost made soup today.
I stopped myself because I am determined to not jump ahead in seasons. It is still summer and most everywhere else it is HOT. But it really feels like fall here.
But then sometimes the sun pops out of the clouds and all the sudden it is summer again.
It’s so weird and such typical summer time mountain weather.
Cold and rainy one minute and the next it’s sunny and warmish (think 60 some degrees F, which is an improvement from 40 degrees.)
Is it weird that I am kind of ready for fall?
I mean I have barely even had summer, but pumpkin spice, crisp apples and Yankee candles (THE BEST) sound pretty cozy and awesome right now.
Oh and Sunday night football, but not because I watch football or really even know anything about football for that matter. I just like to make game day food and bake pumpkin treats.
Because we obviously have to have a sweet treat lying around this house.
My cousin Maggie is already looking for tailgating appetizers and treats.
She’s back in Cleveland and has to deal with my brother Creighton……..
The ultimate Browns fan.
He is a die-hard and the kid loves football more than anything. Unfortunately for her, they run in the same circles and since he has no one around (ahh… meaning me) to make him food, Maggie’s his girl.
So I have fall on the brain.
Football, candles, beer bread and comfort food.
The total opposite of this deliciously tropical summer meal.
But I’d eat this again in a heartbeat anytime of the year.
Sweet and spicy jerk salmon on a bed of coconut rice with cheddar cheese and black beans that are all sitting atop a crispy tostada. And if you think it is weird to put rice on a tostada, don’t. Really, just don’t think.
Just do it because it’s the best thing ever. I told you, we really do eat rice with everything.
Then don’t forget the salsa. The salsa that I have honestly been eating with a spoon all summer long. It’s my favorite thing ever. So freaking good guys. Just trust me.
This whole meal is so tasty, pretty easy, yet also fun + summery!
Oh and last thing, if your not into salmon, chicken works awesome too. I did for the fish haters. They loved it.

YAY! Thanks Jon so happy you liked it!
These look so amazing the jerk salmon with a nice outer crust, the grilled pineapple, and the salsa with peach and coconut , not to mention the coconut rice amazing what complex flavors. Great creativity on this one.
Another winner! Love anything grilled!
Thank you so much!
These were SO good! I made them this week and even the leftovers were tasty! I used quinoa instead of rice because I came home and realized I didn’t have any rice, but it was so good with the quinoa. I’ve been craving fish like crazy with this pregnancy and these hit the spot! Thank you!!!
Thank you!! So happy you loved them!!
Great recipe! We don’t have peaches in CA yet, so I used Mango, YUM!
I bet mongo was awesome!! Thanks Renee!
Hi! I’m just about to make these and unfortunately just now noticed that the chilli powder and cinnamon are listen in the ingredients for the Caribbean jerk but are not in the instructions. Are they just added in with the rest of the sauce? For future reference anyways! Love your recipes! Thanks!
Yup, you are right! Sorry about that. Hope you loved this!! And thank you so much for the kind words! 🙂
Can you explain what the 2 Tablespoons is for under To Assemble?
That should day 2 tablespoons olive oil and it is for making the tostadas. Sorry about that and I fixed the recipe! Hope you love these!
Oooo, jerk salmon! And coconut rice! Sounds soooo good.
Thank you so much!! It really is one of my favorites!
Yeah this weather has been so weird all summer!! Love the salsa you made for this!!
Thank you, Jocelyn! I know you are not much of a fish person, but the salsa is so worth making. You would love it!
We should so hang out. I too am ready for fall and all that comes with it. And I’m not a huge football fan but I love love love game day snacks. Yes, I love summer but Fall, fall is my absolute favorite. Maybe I’ll go light my pumpkin spice candle. 🙂
Trust, i have been dying to light my candles. Like dying! But I am waiting till Mid September, I have too! LOl!
Yes, we need to hang!!
Thanks so much, Des!
Am I the only one who actually makes your recipes? Well, I’m at it again and your recipe for the jerk sauce doesn’t call for garlic but in the instructions you say to add it. It also calls for olive oil but doesn’t say to add it. I’m guessing I just add it? LOVE your recipes and can’t wait to eat these tonight!
I am so sorry, Jenae!! Yes, you were right to just add them! Thanks so much for letting me know, I have fixed the recipe. Hope you are enjoying these right now!
girl…you are SO talented! You make any food stunning
Thank you!! That is so mice of you to say, but trust me. I have photos that are so ugly!
