The Salsa:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen thawed pitted tart (sour) cherries*
  • 1 mango chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 jalapeno seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

The Tacos:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 pounds white fish such as cod or mahi mahi
  • 6 taco-sized tortillas wheat or corn**
  • 6 tablespoons queso fresco or feta cheese


The Salsa:

  • In a medium glass bowl, stir together the tart cherries, mango, lime juice, jalapeno, cilantro, agave nectar and salt.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavors to combine.

The Tacos:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  • In a glass container, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Add the fish, turning to coat with the marinade. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the fish to the lined baking sheet. Discard the marinade.
  • Bake until the fish is just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filets.
  • Let the fish rest until it is cool enough to handle, then flake with your fingers or a fork.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Heat each tortilla until warm, about 10 seconds per side.
  • Divide the fish, salsa and cheese evenly between the tortillas. Serve.


* Canned sour cherries can be substituted.
**For nutritional information, I used 100 calorie 6-inch flour tortillas.
