Honeycrisp Salsa Fish Tacos

Yield: About 3 cups of salsa for 6 tacos plus leftovers.

Skill level: Easy

Spice level: Medium

Need to add a little spice to your next meal? Fragrant Honeycrisp apples are highlighted in this crunchy, sweet and spicy salsa that will excite your taste buds. The Honeycrisp watermelon salsa perfectly complements the light flavor of the ahi tuna steaks. 

Leftover salsa makes a great appetizer for fiestas, game day festivities, and any time you need an easy and fresh dip.

Salsa Ingredients:

  • 2 medium Honeycrisp apples, diced
  • 1 ½ cups seedless watermelon, diced
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • Zest from 1 lime (about a tablespoon of zest)
  • Juice from half a lime
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 good handful of cilantro, coarsely chopped

Taco Ingredients:

  • 2 ahi tuna steaks
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 6 corn or flour tortillas


Toss salsa ingredients together in a medium size bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow flavors to mingle. 

Pat the fish dry and liberally season both sides with salt and pepper. In a hot pan with olive oil sear ahi steaks by cooking on high heat, turning every 1-2 minutes and searing each edge. Tongs may be needed to hold up steaks while searing sides. Rest fish for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain and cutting into inch long chunks for bite sized morsels. 

Dress each tortilla simply with shredded lettuce and add tuna to fill up taco. Top with heaping spoonful of salsa! Devour!
