I’ve been busy again going through my stack of stashed/saved recipes torn over the years from magazines. When I came across this salmon tacos with guacamole recipe, I knew immediately it would be a dish both Mr. Right and I would like. The lime and cilantro combine to give it a really fresh flavor. This is another winner. If you want to simplify the process, buy pre-made guacamole rather than making your own from scratch.
SALMON TACOS WITH GUACAMOLE
(source – Family Circle magazine)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ripe avocado
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
1 pound salmon (4 four-ounce fillets)
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
8 small corn tortillas
1/2 cup cilantro-lime yogurt (recipe below)
Pat salmon dry and place on a foil-lined baking sheet and rub with olive oil, paprika, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or till fish flakes easily.
Meanwhile, make guacamole by combining avocado, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. If you use, store-bought guacamole, skip this step, and relax while the salmon bakes. (;
Wrap tortillas in foil and warm in the oven for a few minutes.
To assemble, flake salmon into large pieces, leaving skin on foil. Spread guacamole and cilantro-lime yogurt onto warmed tortillas. Top with salmon and fold over. May be topped with a spritz of lime juice and some chopped cilantro.
Combine 1 container (6 ounce) plain Greek yogurt with l teaspoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon lime zest, and 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
I served this recipe with a side of rice and this for dessert.
