Fish Taco with Peach Salsa with a Video

You do not need hours of cooking and standing in the kitchen to create one amazing meal. You really do not! That is the whole point of this blog. 99% of my recipes are easy because I do not have hours to stand and cook, even though I cook every single day.

Sometimes, I use shortcuts, meaning store-bought seasonings, cake mixes or taco shells.

I mean, even though it tastes 100 times better when you make it yourself, still it is perfectly alright if you get from the store your favorite seasoning or something that will save you time.

Fish Taco with Peach Salsa with a Video

These tacos were delightful and refreshing. I really loved the idea of sweet and savory salsa, and this one was all that plus more.

Tanginess of salsa gave the whole dimension of great flavors that made these tacos taste even better. However, fish… You will want to take the bread and just scoop it with your fingers directly out of the skillet for one big bite.

It was out of this world. I think it is well balanced, healthy, delicious and perfect for your weekend dinners.

Ingredients

  • 1 – 1 1/2 pounds 453g-680g of Fish – white fish, tilapia, mahi-mahi, etc.
  • 2 tbsp. Taco seasoning
  • Generous pinch of Salt and Ground black pepper
  • Pinch of Chili Flakes
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil

PEACH SALSA:

  • 1/2 English cucumber, or 4 mini cucumbers Japanese, etc.
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 Peach less ripe
  • 2-3 Scallions
  • Handful cilantro Italian flat leaf parsley could be used instead
  • 1 Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Chili Flakes *optional

Serve:

  • Soft or Hard Tortilla Corn Shells
  • Lettuce

Instructions

FISH:

  1. If the fish is frozen, defrost it.
  2. Place the fish in a bowl or a pan, then add taco seasoning, and just massage it for a couple of seconds, then add salt and pepper, lime juice and a drizzle of Olive Oil.
  3. Again, massage the fish with all the seasoning to coat it. Leave the fish to marinate for 15 minutes.
  4. After 15 minutes, preheat the skillet, or frying pan, add Oil to almost smoking point.
  5. Add fish, a few pieces at the time and cook until the fish is cooked through, 145F (62.8C). If it starts to stick to the bottom or rip, it’s alright, we are going to shred it anyway. Don’t over-crowd the pan, so cook a couple at the time, depending on the size of your pieces. Place on the plate until everything is cooked. Then place the fish back in the skillet, and lightly shred. Now, it’s the best time to taste it and see if you need more seasoning, salt or taco seasoning if you like the stronger flavor.

  6. Build your taco however you like.

PEACH SALSA:

  1. Dice all the vegetables and fruit.
  2. Toss it together, and add lime juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. You can add finely chopped cilantro or parsley, but also take the leaves off and roughly rip with your hands and toss with the salad.
  4. I used 1 lime, but if you like it more citrusy, add more.

Recipe Notes

You can use soft small tortillas or hard corn taco shells. If you do not have peach, a good substitute is one mango or even a cup of chopped pineapple. You want the sweetness that you can achieve with fruit.

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe is a must-try. I believe that this is one of the best burgers I have ever made. It is so juicy, tasty and just enchanting.

My kids had these as a traditional burger in a bun, with pickles, tomato, and condiments. However, my husband and I loved it in my amazing side dish, Yellow Rice with Peppers and Tomato Sauce.

Goodness! That meal was fitting for a king and a queen. It was so tasty that I wished we had leftovers.

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

This burger is approachable with accessible ingredients. If you like tuna cakes, then you will love these for sure. Although, I have to add that the taste is far better than tuna cakes. For instance, there is nothing like using fresh fish like this Alaskan halibut.

I feel a bit spoiled and extremely grateful because I get fresh fish from Alaska every month. Sitka Salmon Shares has been a blessing to me and my family. We really love fish, but after getting from this monthly subscription, I know what a difference it has made for us.

Sometimes, it is total through back to the ’80s when we would vacation for weeks at the Adriatic Sea. We would eat freshly caught seafood all the time. Nonetheless, over the years you forget how wild salmon taste or cod.

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

My family loves going on fishing trips and I really appreciate all the catch that my boys would bring o our tend. However, can you even imagine getting a full box, a bounty of delicious fish every month?

We are talking about three species of wild salmon and four species of whitefish, all seasonally home-delivered to your doorstep through our Community Supported Fishery. Perhaps Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon, pot-caught spot prawns, and more sounds better to you?

Simple Halibut Burgers
Yield: Serves 4

Simple Halibut Burgers

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Instead of regular beef burgers why don't you make a little switch and make this amazingly delicious and I might add Simple Halibut Burger Recipe. You will not regret it because my halibut burgers are not only simple but extremely tasty as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound halibut burger meat
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, plus 3 tablespoons extra

Instructions

  1. If your halibut burger meat is frozen then defrost first. I like placing mine in the fridge overnight and mix the ingredients in the morning so it could marinate all day in my fridge for the best-tasting burger.
  2. Prep and measure everything, then combine all the ingredients in one large bowl.
  3. Line a tray, plate or a baking sheet with silicone baking mat, parchment paper or even plastic wrap would work. This will get the burgers off the tray easily.
  4. Divide the mixture meat into 4 and roll each portion into a ball. Press the balls down gently with your hands to form 4 patties. Sometimes I make them a bit smaller; you could get 6 smaller patties or 4 thicker once. 4 patties would make a bit over 4 oz burger patty.
  5. Coat each patty with the breadcrumbs on both sides then place on the tray/plate. You can use any breadcrumbs on hand; panko, plain, Italian style, etc.
  6. Now, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to up to 12 hours. Allowing burgers to marinate in the fridge will help them bind better as well as cook easier, plus the flavor will be that much tastier.
  7. Turn your stove to medium-high and heat cast-iron skillet or just a frying pan if you do not have a cast-iron skillet.
  8. Add the patties, in batches, and cook until browned on the bottom, 2 minutes on one side then flip and cook 3 minutes on the other, flip again and let t cook for an additional two to three minutes, adjusting the heat if necessary. The patties will feel firmer in the center when done.
  9. They are great the next day as well, just make sure to refrigerate them.

Notes

You may use some dill as well for the fresh burgers. Also, green onions work well with this mixture.

Cucumber-Tomato and Mozzarella Cheese Salad

I know very well the taste is not the same. After all, freshly harvested fruit and vegetables are indeed the best eaten in season.

However, for the gracious sake of your cravings, we can most certainly eat delicious salads like this 365 days a year.

Above all, Cucumber, Tomato, and Mozzarella Cheese Salad undoubtedly my absolute favorite summer food. We probably eat this on a daily base during hot summer days.

Cucumber-Tomato and Mozzarella Cheese Salad

It is so refreshing and tasty it goes perfectly with any grilled food, even grilled vegetables if you are vegetarian.

You assuredly have a possible option here to include some avocados or grilled tofu even if you do not consume cheese. As you can see it is most definitely versatile salad.

So next time when you have a family gathering or just grilling time, make this salad. I am sure that you will not regret because it is really tasty.

Recipe

As I said below, you can add other ingredients and make it your own depending on the season.

My daughter loves Avocado so we always add it, especially if we are out of cheese. It just gives you a bit of creaminess which would be perfect for vegan.
