Combine salmon with an easy taco meal!!

Salmon Tacos


  • 1 pound salmon fillets cut into one inch cubes
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin The original recipe called for 1 tablespoon
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped (I just used minced onion and added about 1 teaspoon minced garlic)
  • 2 limes quartered (I just used some lime juice I had.)
  • 1 16 ounce can of diced tomatoes (The original recipe calls for tomatoes with green chilies.)
  • about 1/3 cup of my salsa which I knew contained some cilantro The original recipe called for green onions and cilantro.


  1. Toss cubed salmon in cumin and chili powder. Set aside.
  2. Heat large skillet over medium and cook yellow onion for 2 minutes.
  3. Turn heat up to medium high. Add salmon to skillet. Lightly sear salmon cubes for about 2-3 minutes, turning gently (don't break the salmon into pieces!).
  4. Return heat setting to medium. Add canned tomatoes and salsa (green onions and cilantro if desired.)
  5. Squeeze lime juice over the salmon mixture.
  6. Serve with warm tortillas, salsa, sour cream, sliced avocado (if desired), and crisp romaine lettuce.
