Grilled Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa

I just have to tell you guys....I went to Spotlight, which is like the Australian Michael's (I'm not even mentioning that HL word). And I had SO MUCH FUN taking pictures of fabric. They have tables and tables and tables of ROLLS of fabric. And just piles of every kind of fabric and lace. So much TEXTURE! So many COLORS! I can't wait to get these photos downloaded and just play!  (I also bought some awesome beads and got an idea for how to make a necklace holder with old hangers. No one but me will see it...)

It's still winter in Australia, but getting warmer, thank goodness. And the sun is coming up earlier and going down later. In the middle of the winter, it's pitch black here at 5:00 p.m. and in the middle of the summer, the sun is up and being cheeky at 4:00 a.m. And Queensland does NOT have daylight savings time.  As I took the picture above at my desk, I was listening to a story being told around the corner about a co-worker's cat's encounter with a kangaroo. Only in Australia!

But I'm ready for summer and have been designing summer tee-shirts.  I put my new Steampunk Fairy design on two. One is available in the U.S. and one is available over here in Australia.

TODAY's Recipe and Cooking Adventure

This recipe was a healthy hit. It was easy to make, although I didn't have all the correct ingredients, and was a total thumbs-up. I would do the fish just a little differently next time, which I discuss below, but I wouldn't change a thing about the peach salsa. It was just yummy and perfect!  


For the salsa
  • 1 can 15.25 ounce peach halves, drained, rinsed and chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped (about ½ cup)
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped (about ¼ cup)
  • 1 whole jalapeƱo pepper, rinsed, seeded and finely chopped (about 1 tbsp.)
  • 1 tablespoon
  • finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons
  • lemon juice

For the fish
  • 2 swordfish fillets  (the original recipe called for Talapia, but everything I read says NOT to eat Talapia. It's horrible for you.
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • The recipe called for Adobo seasoning, which I can't get in Australia. I made a marinade with Mexican seasoning and canned roasted peppers, cider vinegar, Stevia, a little lime juice, some cumin and a tiny dash of liquid smoke.  Next time I think I'll just use the Mexican seasoning, but add the canned roasted peppers to the dish I roast the fish in. They were really good!
  • 8 6 inch  flour tortillas, warmed


For the Sala:

Mix all ingredients in bowl, cover and let sit in refrigerator until ready to serve.

For the fish: 

Heat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat (cooked in the toaster over on Med grill). Using paper towels, pat fish dry; transfer to grilling surface and pat spices on both sides.

Place fish on hot, greased grill grates. Cook, flipping once, until fish is opaque and flakes easily with fork. The recipe called for 8 minutes, but I cooked the swordfish for about 30 minutes and it was perfect. flake fish.

To serve, fill each tortilla with ½ fish fillet and about 1/3 cup salsa.
