Fish Tacos with Cherry Salsa

Fish Tacos with Cherry Salsa

We all know red cherries are delicious on their own, but have you tried adding them to savory dishes? We asked our friends at Northwest Cherry Growers, a collective of passionate farmers, for a few of their favorite recipes.

Pro tip: if you don’t have a cherry pitter, grab a chopstick or reusable straw. Push your chosen utensil at the point where the stem meets the fruit and push the pit straight through into a bowl. You can also use a paring knife to slice through the fruit (avoiding the seed) and pop out the pit.

  • Serving Size



  • Quick Cherry Salsa

  • 1 pound white fish fillets (such as halibut, cod or tilapia)

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper ground

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 cup pitted and halved Northwest fresh sweet cherries

  • 1/4 cup diagonally sliced green onion

  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped

  • 1 tablespoon jalapeño pepper* chopped

  • 8 corn tortillas

  • 2 cups shredded lettuce

  • 1 cup diced avocados


  1. Prepare Quick Cherry Salsa: combine 1 cup prepared salsa with 1 cup chopped cherries, 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion and 1-2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeño pepper* in a bowl; mix thoroughly. Let stand at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend. Makes 2 cups.
  2. For the fish tacos, cut fish into 3/4-inch cubes.
  3. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Sprinkle seasoned flour over fish cubes and toss to coat pieces.
  5. Heat olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat and sauté fish until lightly browned and cooked.
  6. Add cherries, green onion, cilantro and jalapeño pepper; sauté about 1 minute or until cherries are thoroughly heated. If desired, wrap tortillas in microwave-safe plastic wrap and microwave at HIGH 1-1 1/2 minutes.
  7. Divide fish and cherry mixture in 8; spoon each portion to one side of each tortilla.
  8. Top with 1/4 cup lettuce and 2 tablespoons diced avocados. Fold tortilla in half or roll into cone shape.
  9. Serve with Quick Cherry Salsa.
  10. * For milder salsa, substitute jalapeño with Anaheim chili peppers
