Looking for a great grilled fish topper? Just before serving, toss some chopped fresh tomato, mango or pineapple (or add them all) with the pink onions and pile on the fish. Yum!
They'll last several weeks in the fridge so you'll always have something pink to top a hot off the grill burger or a light, fluffy omelet.
Worried about onion breath? Follow up by chewing a couple of spring of fresh parsley. You'll be kissing sweet!
The onions magically change from red to pink as they marinate.
