  • Sprinkle seafood rub, chili powder, salt, and black pepper over 1 side of each salmon steak; rub in with your fingers until evenly distributed.

  • 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.

  • Slice each salmon fillet lengthwise to create 6 pieces.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I thought the recipe was delicious. I will admit my bias is that anything with salmon and avocado has to be delicious. To the reviewer who was confused about the weight of the salmon, I agree the recipe assumes an experienced cook. I think it is intended for 4-6 people, which means 1.5 - 2 pounds of salmon, depending on appetite and additional options available. A salmon filet that can be cut into 6 pieces typically weighs between 0 .75 - 1 pound. Read More

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

Great alternative to regular tacos. My husband typically only likes meat tacos but he absolutely loved this recipe. Didn't use the mango salsa; instead used pre made trader joes garlic salsa and added more lime juice cilantro and some of the extra avocado. Read More

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 fish. Wonder how it would be with shrimp? The salsa recipe is worth making by itself - does make a large quantity - very good as a side dish or on ham wraps. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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 about 4 hours. Added a little more lime juice. Read More

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 children eat it as is without cheese and stuff and they loved it. My side dish was refried pinto beans and Whole Foods tortilla chips. Read More

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 wait for our next taco night! Read More
