Recipes & Real Estate: Sweet Salsa at Paramount Bay

October 22, 2014
A step beyond typical property videos, Recipes & Real Estate melds a cooking show and a Puerto Vallarta home tour. "This is the best of both worlds," says show host and real estate agent, Laura Gelezunas.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Recipes and Real Estate, because it's the kitchen that sells the house. In this episode, Laura Gelezunas and the Kitchenettes show us how to make Tangy Sweet Salsa and Avocado Margaritas at Paramount Bay Condo 708 in Colonia Amapas, just five minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Living in the tropical climate of Puerto Vallarta offers many perks, and one of the them is being able to buy locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables year round. All of these fresh ingredients serve as inspiration for Laura, who does not use exact measurements. Since everyone's palate is different, she cooks 'to taste,' and you may want to do the same when preparing the recipes below.

Recipe: Tangy Sweet Salsa

2 cups finely diced fresh pineapple
2 cups finely diced tomato
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 finely chopped serrano chiles (discard seeds and membrane)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon cumin
2 to 3 cloves minced garlic
1.5 teaspoons sea salt
1.5 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and place in the fridge for at least two hours so the flavors meld. Serve with chips or tostadas or spoon over your favorite protein.

Recipe: Avocado Margaritas

2 cups of ice
1 avocado
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
4 shots of tequila (your choice)
2 shots simple syrup or Jarabe
2 shots triple sec or Controy
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

Put all this into a blender and mix well. Serve in glasses rimmed with Tajin.

Real Estate: Paramount Bay Condo 708

The Paramount Bay Condo complex has spectacular views of Banderas Bay. Unit 708 is no exception. This is a wonderful example of indoor/outdoor living. There are floor to ceiling sliding glass doors from the living room and master bedroom which open on to a large terrace. What a great way to let the ocean breezes refresh you.

The kitchen/dining/living area is an awesome entertaining venue, especially with the open access to the terrace. There are rich, teak doors and cabinets, plus granite counters in the kitchen and these are accented by the marble floors throughout the condominium.

Paramount Bay 708 has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has an awesome bathroom with slate flooring, two sinks, freestanding large oval bathtub, a separate shower area and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has its own full bathroom with glass enclosed shower. There is a walk-in closet too.

An office space or den has sliding teak door panels and a small window to let light in from the corridor. There is also a laundry room. This unit is sold unfurnished, but this is Mexico, so that is negotiable.

All Paramount Bay condos include indoor, assigned parking spaces. Enjoy full access to the public areas including a fantastic 200 foot infinity pool overlooking the Bay of Banderas and the city. You can work out in the fully equipped gym. This complex is pet friendly and has a dog run park. There is 24 hour security for your piece of mind.

A great investment property, Paramount Bay 708 is extremely desirable for short term vacation or extended period rentals. For more information on this luxury condominium in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, contact Laura Gelezunas at Laura(at)
