Fish Tacos with Pomegranate Salsa

We’re mixing up a couple different types of fruit with some of the usual suspects—cilantro, red onion, jalapeño—for a delightfully different approach to fresh salsa. We used juicy grapefruit and pomegranate arils, but orange or lime paired with something sweeter like mango or pineapple will work just as well. Use this salsa as a sweet-and-spicy kick for fish tacos—or, you know, just grab a bag of tortilla chips and call it a night. There’s no shame in that.

Watch now to learn how to make your own citrus-forward pomegranate salsa and how to build flaky fish tacos:

Serves 4




  • 2 pound fillet of locally-caught/sustainably-sourced white fish like cod, seabass, or pollock

  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1/2 line, juiced and zested

I just want to thank Misfits for the box I received today, Sunday, May 10, Mother’s Day. After a rocky start to my subscription, things have straightened out after 5 weeks. The box was on time, and the vegetables and fruit were very fresh. I am very pleased.

Thank you for providing us produce at a very stressful time for all!
