Sweet and spicy peach salsa pairs perfectly with light, flaky tilapia for a taco experience your mouth won’t want to miss. For a little extra veg, try some local microgreens. Arugula has a particularly delightful flavor to add to this dish. Summer is a great time to experiment with fresh-caught, local fish varieties as well.
Fish tacos are popular with good reason. Not only are they utterly scrumptious, they can offer a more nutritious and lighter alternative to the traditional greasy beef or pork tacos. This recipe is made with peach salsa for a taco experience that is tailored to the light flavors of tilapia.
