Salmon Fish Tacos

I have never really been a fish fan until my husband and I decided to start eating it for the health benefits. Since then we have found quite a few good recipes and I have really enjoyed eating it. One recipe I have not tried, but heard several people mention was fish tacos. I thought I would try making my own fish tacos, a healthy version, after hearing about how most fish tacos are fried.

Ingredients

For the tortillas

  • 4 3/4 Cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup shortening (optional)
  • 2 Cups very warm water

For the salsa

  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 3/4 Cups chopped red onion
  • 1/2 Cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cumin

For the tacos

  • 1 Pound salmon fillet
  • Pinch of chili powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • Plain yogurt, for garnish

Directions

For the tortillas

Mix 4 cups of flour and the rest of the ingredients together well. Knead in additional flour. Let the dough rise for about 20 minutes. Roll out into tortillas and cook in a sauté pan with non-stick cooking spray, about 2 minutes a side.

For the salsa

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix. Let sit for 24 hours or at least 1 hour.

For the tacos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the salmon on sheet and sprinkle evenly with spices. Bake for 12 minutes, or until done. Flake the salmon using a fork.

To assemble, top each tortilla with the flaked salmon, mango salso, and a dollop of plain yogurt.

Salmon Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
