    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! I happened to come across this recipe last night. I made blackened Salmon for dinner and had leftover Salmon. So all I had to do was make the Mango Salsa...and used the leftover Salmon. It was very good and didn't feel like we were having leftovers! I added a little onion to the salsa for added spice.  -  14 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This will be become regular favorite. So delicious and healthy! I did use Haddock instead of Salmon and added red onion to the salsa. Couldn't find the fish rub so I used Cajun spice. Can't wait for our next taco night!  -  22 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
