Grilled Salmon Tacos with Pineapple-Strawberry-Mango Salsa

Of all the seasonings that you can throw at salmon, this one by Emeriil Lagasse is still my favorite. 

 

Ingredients

2 salmon filets

 

Seasoning

2 1/2 TBSP paprika 

2 TBSP garlic powder 

1 TBSP black pepper

1 TBSP onion powder 

1 TBSP cayenne pepper 

1 TBSP oregano 

1 TBSP thyme

 

Pineapple-Strawberry-Mango Salsa

3/4 cup diced pineapple 

3/4 cup diced mango 

1/2 cup diced strawberries

1/4 cup diced red onion

1 jalapeno diced (stemmed and seeded, of course!) 

2 TBSP chopped mint 

2 TBSP orange juice 

1 lime juiced 

1/4 TSP salt 

 

Directions

Take care of the salsa first. Reason being is that the salmon is so quick and you don't want that finished only to get cold while you're doing all the chopping and dicing with the salsa. So prep the salsa first and chuck it in the fridge. 

Next, for the salmon, combine the ingredients. Then cover both sides of the salmon with a heaping 2-3 TBSP olive oil and then season both sides of the salmon with Emerill's goodness. Place in your skillet on medium (or grill!) skin side down and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Then turn the fish a quarter turn and allow to cook for about 3 more minutes. Then flip the fish and cook for about 2 minutes and you're good to go! 

Then fry your tortillas quickly in canola oil (let em puff and then pull em!), salt, and assemble the tacos!
