- 1 1/2 lb (750 g) white-fleshed fish (such as tilapia, cod or haddock), cut into chunks
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
- 12 corn tortillas, lightly toasted
- 2 cups (500 mL) shredded purple cabbage
- 2 Ontario Heirloom tomatoes, chopped
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- 4 Ontario Peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped
- 2 Ontario Greenhouse Jalapeno Peppers, seeded and diced
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) finely chopped red onion

- Toss together peaches, jalapenos, onion, corn, cilantro, lime juice, honey, hot sauce and salt until well combined; refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or up to 2 days before serving.
- Stir together paprika, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper; toss with fish until well coated. In large, nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook fish in batches, adding more oil as needed, for 3 minutes per side or until browned all over and fish flakes easily with a fork. Top tortillas with cabbage, fish, tomatoes and salsa. Serve with lime wedges.
- Add a touch of creaminess by mashing a ripe avocado with some sour cream and drizzling over the fish before topping with salsa.
- Toast tortillas by placing in a hot, dry skillet for 15 seconds per side or until warmed through and marked with little black spots.
