Fish tacos are great but wild salmon tacos are terrific. Why? Because they are a SuperFood, of course. They also happen to be one of the tastiest fish options out there. Try this quick and delicious recipe for yourself and see.
Serving Size: 1 taco (or 2 small)
Volume: 2 soft tacos (or 4 small)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
1/2 pound (7-8 ounces) wild salmon fillet, skin removed, cut into 1/4″ strips
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 avocado, peeled and cut into four 1/4″ strips
1/2 cup chopped mango
1 cup fresh baby spinach
2 tablespoons fresh tomato salsa
2 (8″) whole grain tortillas (or 4 small soft or hard corn tortillas)
Sprinkle the wild salmon with cumin. Grease a sauté pan for 4 seconds with extra virgin olive or canola cooking spray. Place the pan over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add the wild salmon and sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until it’s opaque. Fill each tortilla with half of the salmon, 2 slices of avocado, 1/4 cup of the mango, 1/2 cup of the spinach and a tablespoon of salsa. Fold the tortilla into a roll and secure with a toothpick if necessary. Serve immediately.
Tip: Mango purchased in a jar in the fresh produce section is a quick and easy way to keep mango on hand.
Why We Love It
What do kids love more than tacos? Okay, pizza, but tacos are up there too. This is a great way to make the usual dinner a little more exciting without spending too much time in the kitchen. You’ll also really enjoy how the smoky flavor of cumin blends with the flavor of the wild salmon while undercutting the fishy smell. You can always switch out your wild salmon tacos for another fish (or even turkey and chicken) if you want to mix it up every now and then.
