The summer has arrived, and goodness, it is hot!  During the hot summer months, we love to grill out and what better way to do that than with this grilled fish tacos with pineapple salsa recipe.  

It’s the perfect combination of fish but sweet salsa mixed in.

Summer is the time for BBQs, cold beer, a fish tacos.  I personally love fish tacos and these are the perfect summer dish.  I love grilling fish but it’s the one thing that we need to eat more of.  

I know that fish is healthy, full of healthy fats that promote weight loss, so it seems like we would be eating it all the time.  But we definitely don’t eat it as often as I would like.

On a side note:  our cat loves when we fix fish.  She smells it and thinks it’s all for her, not for us as well.  

I actually love blowing air into her face after we eat fish because you can see her sniffing and smelling it.  It’s actually really funny to see.

If you are looking for other seafood recipes, this tuna salad hummus wrap and Jerk shrimp recipes are perfect.

Summer means grilling, and grilling means more fish. Combine them for this fish taco recipe.

    Thanks For Sharing this amazing recipe. My family loved it. I will be sharing this recipe with my friends. Hope the will like it.

  2. I will let you know for sure! I wish I liked fish, since I know it is good for you. I just haven’t ever been able to get on board 😛

  3. Thank you…I love this salsa so much. It’s delicious and so easy to make! Chicken or pork would be delicious too!

  4. I think that would be good! I would love to try that (or the teriakyi chicken I mentioned on Twitter)…either of those sound delicious. If you try this on chicken, please let me know how it turns out. Fish is actually really good for you, so I will probably be adding more to our diet.

  5. I love this salsa idea. Perfect with chicken or pork for a non seafood person like me!

  6. How do you think the fish seasoning would taste on chicken?? I think it would be pretty good 🙂 I’m not a fish person at all, but these and that salsa sound so good for chicken.
