    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.

    My fiance really liked this, I was on the fence about it. What made that taco was the salsa.  -  12 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Tried to put a photo in but wouldn’t let me. But this is a wonderful healthy dish, compatible with many diets. Also, it is SUPER delicious. I made it exactly how it is said other than the rub for fish I used Cali blackened dry rub. Also, I made a savory lemon aioli sauce which complimented the tacos very much. I recommend that sauce with these tacos. So many levels of flavors and textures, tbh words cannot describe how good this meal was. I will probably talk about it for years.  -  01 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
