Salmon Tacos

Fish wrapped in tortillas has been eaten in coastal areas of the Americas for a very long time. But the quintessential modern fish taco originated in Baja California on the north-west coast of Mexico. Try my version of Salmon Tacos that is high in protein, calcium, magnesium and potassium.

  • 1 Skillet
  • 1 blender



  • 1/2 pound salmon wild caught, skin on
  • 1/2 Tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice

Avocado Sauce

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cilantro if you can't eat cilantro replace with parsley
  • 1/2 cup salsa


  • 4 corn tortillas use corn if gluten free or flour if not



  • Mix the cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, and garlic powder in a bowl. Pat the salmon dry with a clean towel. Rub it with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle it with the salt divided between the filets, then the mix of seasoning.
  • Heat a large cast iron or stainless steel skillet (not non-stick*) over medium high heat and add olive oil. Add the salmon skin side up and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until cooked about halfway to the center of the thick part of the salmon. Flip the salmon.
  • Cook for 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness, until just tender and pink at the center (the internal temperature should be between 125 to 130 Fahrenheit in the center when removed)
  • Remove from the heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Then flake the salmon into large pieces with a fork.

Avocado Sauce

  • Add the avocado to a blender.
  • Add the Greek yogurt, lime juice, cilantro (or parsley) and salt.
  • Blend until smooth.


  • Warm the tortillas in a pan for 30 seconds per side until browned.
  • Layer the tacos with salmon, salsa and avocado sauce.
