Tilapia Tacos with Peach Relish

Yay it’s peach season!  I believe I’ve mentioned before that one of the reasons I love summer is all the delicious fruit.  Here in the south, peaches are all the rage.  Georgia is really the place known for it’s peaches, but right next door in Alabama, we’ve got plenty to go around too.

These fish tacos were amazing, with the perfect combo of sweet and tart.  Plus it gave me a good excuse to buy a few more peaches than I needed just for snacking.  This is a great Summer recipe with it’s light, refreshing flavors.  It’s also something a little unique.  I mean, I dunno how often you eat fish tacos at your house, but in our kitchen it’s pretty rare.  In fact, this was our first homemade fish taco experience.  If they’re all this good, it certainly will not be our last.
