  • salt and black pepper
  • 8 small corn tortillas, warmed

Steps:

  1. Preheat the grill. Brush grates with well-oiled paper towels.
  2. Brush peaches with remaining oil and place on grill for 3 minutes. Remove from grill, let cool, and chop into small pieces.
  3. Place fish on a platter and pat dry.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the chile powder and adobo. Season with salt and black pepper as desired.  
  5. Cover the fish with chile mixture and cover for 20 minutes.  
  6. In a bowl, mix the chopped roasted peaches, red bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, cilantro and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate.
  7. Place fish on the grill and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Use a spatula to flip fish carefully.
  8. Warm tortillas on the grill for about 30 seconds on each side. Keep them warm by wrapping in a clean dishtowel.
  9. Place 2 tortillas on each plate; top with a serving of fish and peach salsa. ¡Fácil!
  10. Notes: 1. Tuna and halibut are great substitutes for red snapper and tilapia. 2. To avoid fish flaking apart on the grill, use fillets that are 1 inch thick. 3. You can use canned adobo chile; make it into a paste by mashing a small amount with a fork.
