Blackstone Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa

As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases.

Blackstone Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa is one of my favorite taco recipes, ever. We used fresh cobia in this recipe, but any firm whitefish will work. Likewise, if you don’t have a flat top griddle you can cook these on the stove in a cast iron pan as well.

Blackstone Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa

This is an easy recipe cooked on your flat top gas griddle that’s fresh, light, and packed full of flavor. Perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, with bright flavors that work together perfectly. 

You might be used to fish tacos being in the breaded fish stick form. These are not those. 

Fresh fish is best, and the fresher the better, but this recipe could also be done with frozen store-bought fish as well. If you don’t have access to Cobia, walleye, cod, pollock, or any firm whitefish would work really well with these seasonings and flavors. 

Likewise, use fresh peaches if you are reading this while they are in season. If not, you could try frozen peaches that have been chopped and then thawed, but I haven’t tested with those, so I can’t really say what it would do to the texture of the end result.

Are fish tacos Mexican?

Fish tacos originated in Baja, California, so like many of the foods you’ll find called “Mexican” in the states, it is more “Mexican-inspired” than truly authentic. Not that it matters. Some of my favorite foods are the least “authentic” things out there.

What if you don’t have a flat top?

Get one!

All kidding aside, you really should get a gas griddle, but until then you don’t have to miss out on these tacos. You could cook these in a cast iron pan on the stovetop or in a cast iron pan on your pellet grill. Either way, totally delicious.

Blackstone Flat Top Grill

Flat top griddles are so versatile! Make pancakes for an army, or the best hibachi fried rice you’ve ever had. Reverse sear a steak, whip up some smash burgers, or cook basically anything you could cook in a pan that doesn’t require a sauce. You need this!

I pan fried some wild caught cod and added a few spices that I particularly like. Served on corn tortillas with this peach salsa, and added lettuce (I wanted to do cabbage but I need to use up a giant head of iceberg somehow), sour cream, cotija cheese and a squeeze of lime, since those are my toppings of choice. In heaven. the peach salsa is beyond.
