When picking a fish for a dish like tacos, you’ll want a firm, white fish that is easy to cut into cubes and won’t fall apart when cooked.
I personally love tilapia fish tacos, so that’s what I use in this recipe. Tilapia is really affordable and you can find it anywhere. I love the mild flavor of tilapia recipes, and how quickly it cooks! You can also use mahi mahi, cod, barramundi, snapper, or haddock.
Fish Taco Toppings
The only fish taco topping you’ll need for this recipe is my peach salsa! My peach salsa for fish tacos is simply a combination of fresh peach, jalapeno, cilantro, avocado, red onion and lime juice.
The key to making a really tasty salsa is to dice the ingredients really finely, especially the red onion. Red onion can be really overpowering in large chunks, which is why I like to get it as fine as possible. I do, however, like to make the peach chunks a little bigger.
For another variety, try my recipe for peach salsa with mangoes. It makes the best fish tacos sauce!
These fish tacos with peach salsa are so fast, fun and fresh! They’re perfect for a weekend dinner party or summer gathering, or an easy weeknight meal!

Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa
- ½ pound tilapia or other firm, white fish
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- 1 Tablespoon lime juice
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 6 corn tortillas
- 1 yellow peach diced
- ¼ medium red onion very finely diced
- ¼ cup cilantro finely diced
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ½ jalapeno seeds removed, finely diced
- ½ avocado finely diced
- ¼ teaspoon salt

- To make peach salsa, combine all the salsa ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust lime, salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, and add a dash of olive oil. Cook the tilapia for 3-5 minutes, turning occasionally until fish is cooked through. The fish should be white throughout, rather than opaque.
- While the fish is cooking, heat your tortillas. Heat a large cast iron pan over medium to high heat, and cook each tortilla one at a time for 2-4 minutes on each side, until they are lightly charcoaled. To assemble, take a tortilla, add the fish, then top with the peach salsa.
