  1. Combine mangoes, avocado, orange bell pepper, and jalapeno in a large bowl to make salsa. Add lime juice, cilantro, and salt; mix to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  2. Sprinkle seafood rub, chili powder, salt, and black pepper over 1 side of each salmon steak; rub in with your fingers until evenly distributed.
  3. Coat the bottom of a large skillet with olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add salmon skin-side down and cook until skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip salmon and carefully peel off skin. Season top with seafood rub, chili powder, salt and black pepper. Continue cooking until lightly browned on the second side and salmon flakes easily with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Slice each salmon fillet lengthwise to create 6 pieces.
  5. Lightly oil another skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry corn tortillas, one at a time, until heated through and pliable, about 30 seconds per side.
  6. Place 1 piece of salmon on each tortilla. Top with salsa. Squeeze a wedge of lime on top.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute a red bell pepper for the orange if desired.

My family felt like it was missing something. It seemed like it needed more texture and flavor.

Great recipe!! For the seafood rub, I used Old Bay Seasoning and the fish was delicious! I will definitely be making this again!

I've made this twice now. It is Excellent! The spice I used was Weber's Chili Lime Rub. Because I do not like mangos, I used peaches. Yum. My husband says this is a keeper.

Everyone loved it. Even those who said they don't eat avocados loved it. I used the salmon filets instead of salmon steaks. I seasoned the salmon early and let them sit in the fridge for abou...

Wow! My family has a new taco for Taco Tuesday. Prep was a little longer but next time I will make the salsa and season the salmon the night before or in the morning before work. I made my chi...

My husband isn't fond of salmon so I substituted cod, used one less mango, and served all in low carb, high-fiber tortillas. Husband really liked it; will make again and may try other types of ...

I grilled the salmon and that added a nice smokey flavor to that blended nicely with the fruity salsa. My husband really liked these. I thought it was a nice change from regular fish tacos.

This will be become regular favorite. So delicious and healthy! I did use Haddock instead of Salmon and added red onion to the salsa. Couldn't find the fish rub so I used Cajun spice. Can't ...
