Ingredients for Salmon Tacos:

  • 4 salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small flour or corn tortillas
  • Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, diced avocado, sliced radishes, sour cream

Ingredients for Mango Salsa:

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation:

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels and brush them with olive oil on both sides.

In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Rub the spice mixture evenly over the salmon fillets.

Grill the salmon for 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and slightly charred on the edges. Remove from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before flaking it into large chunks.

While the salmon is grilling, prepare the mango salsa. In a medium bowl, combine the diced mango, red onion, red bell pepper, jalapeño pepper, lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.

Warm the tortillas on the grill or in a dry skillet for about 30 seconds on each side.

To assemble the tacos, divide the flaked salmon evenly among the tortillas. Top each taco with a generous spoonful of mango salsa and any optional toppings you desire.

Serve the salmon tacos with extra lime wedges on the side for squeezing, and enjoy immediately!
