This fruit side dish is deliciously different and goes well with pork, chicken and seafood.
Guava Sautéed with Chives
3 guavas, seeded and sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Salt, to taste
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
Sauté the guava slices in the butter over low heat for a few minutes to warm them through. Add a pinch of salt and the cream, then cook for a couple of minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly. Sprinkle with the paprika, then the chives, and serve immediately. This makes an excellent accompaniment for spicy Mexican dishes.
Makes about 1 cup.
