Fish Tacos with Zucchini Peach Salsa

Sweet and spicy fish tacos topped with a refreshing zucchini peach salsa.


For the Salsa:

  • 2 small zucchini, — peeled and cut into small diced
  • 2 small ripe peaches, — peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
  • 2 limes — juiced

For the Tacos:

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 4 tilapia filets — (8 ounces each)
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • Optional toppings: Sliced avocado, — chopped cilantro, queso fresco or feta, sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)


  1. Prepare the salsa: Place the zucchini, peaches, and red onion in a medium bowl. Add the olive oil, salt, pepper cilantro, and the juice of the 2 limes. Toss gently to coat, then place in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the smoked paprika, chipotle powder, salt, pepper, and cumin. Squeeze the lime over the surface of the fish filets, drizzle with half of the extra virgin olive oil, then sprinkle and pat the seasoning on the top of the fish.
  3. Drizzle the remaining half tablespoon of the olive oil in a non stick pan and heat over medium high until it shimmers. Add the fish, seasoning side up. Cook 4 minutes, then flip the pan and cook on the other side an additional 3 to 4 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Transfer to a plate, then break into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Meanwhile, place the tortillas on a baking sheet and warm in the oven for 10 minutes. Assemble the tacos by arranging the fish pieces on the tortilla, then top with the salsa and any additional desired toppings. Enjoy immediately.
