Grilled Salmon Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Grilled Salmon Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa
Try these healthy, quick and easy fish tacos that the entire family will love, made with smoky-spicy grilled salmon, zesty mango-avocado salsa and low-fat lime mayonnaise. We used salmon steaks because we like the juicy texture and flavor that you get from keeping the skin and bones on the fish, but you can just as easily use skinless, boneless fillets.

1/4 cup mayonnaise, “lite” or regular
1 tablespoon lime juice
Zest of one lime
2 teaspoons chile powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 pound salmon steaks or fillets
2 tablespoons extra ­virgin olive oil
8 corn tortillas
1 cup finely shredded cabbage
Mango-Avocado Salsa (recipe follows)



Preheat the oven to 350°.

Stir together the mayonnaise, lime juice and lime zest. In another small bowl, combine the chile powder and the sugar. Rub the salmon with the olive oil, then sprinkle with the chile powder/sugar mixture. Set aside to marinate for a few minutes.


Wrap the tortillas in foil and bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until they are soft and warm.


Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over medium high heat. Sprinkle the salmon with a little salt and place in the hot grill pan. Cook for 4 minutes, then turn and cook for another 3 minutes, or until just cooked through.


Remove the skin and bones from the salmon, if any, and gently break the salmon into large pieces. Fill the warm tortillas with the salmon, then top with the shredded cabbage and the mango-avocado salsa. Drizzle with the lime mayonnaise and serve immediately.
