    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • Salsa
    • 3 ripe mangos - peeled, pitted and diced
    • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
    • 1 orange or red pepper, diced
    • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 tablespoon spicy seafood seasoning or rub, or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder, or to taste
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 2 skin-on salmon fillets
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed, divided
    • 6 tortillas
    • 3 large limes, cut into wedges

    Method
    Prep:40min  ›  Cook:9min  ›  Ready in:49min 

    1. Combine mangos, avocado, orange pepper and jalapeno in a large bowl to make salsa. Add lime juice, coriander and salt; mix to combine. Cover with cling film and refrigerate.
    2. Sprinkle seafood seasoning, chilli powder, salt and black pepper over 1 side of each salmon steak; rub in with your fingers until evenly distributed.
    3. Coat the bottom of a large pan 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 seasoning, chilli 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.
    4. Slice each salmon fillet lengthwise to create 6 pieces.
    5. Lightly oil another pan over medium heat. Pan-fry corn tortillas, one at a time, until heated through and pliable, about 30 seconds per side.
    6. Place 1 piece of salmon on each tortilla. Top with salsa. Squeeze a wedge of lime on top.

    Delicious and pretty darn healthy recipe. I usually prefer salmon cooked on the grill but with the spices added in the frying pan, this salmon was very tasty. Warning, allow mucho time for chopping. Other than that, this recipe is easy and yummy. Oh, next time I will use 2 avocados.  -  01 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    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.  -  04 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
