Fish Tacos with Watermelon and Avocado Salsa


 It's watermelon season! While great on it's own (and oh so refreshing), I wanted to use it in a recipe. This salsa is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and the avocado adds a nice creamy bite. Feel free to use whatever you fish you like, but I think flaky cod works great. If you have any leftover salsa, scoop it up with some whole grain tortilla chips!


1. Combine salsa ingredients in a bowl. Cover tightly with plastic and place in the fridge. 


2. Heat a grill pan (or large saute pan) to medium-high. Coat cod with garlic powder, chili powder, salt and oil. Cook for 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Transfer to a platter. 





3. Warm tortillas in the same pan, then fill with fish and salsa.
