Ingredients

Mango Salsa

  • 1 medium to large ripe mango Make sure it's not overly ripe!
  • 1 jalapeno
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice (or one lime)
  • 1 avocado
  • tsp salt

Blackened Salmon Tacos

  • 2 servings of salmon (about 8 oz of salmon)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp chipotle powder
  • ½ tbsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • tsp salt
  • ½ cup chopped cabbage *optional for color
  • ½ cup chopped tomatoes
  • street size white corn or flour tortillas

Instructions

Mango Salsa

  • Be sure to peel skin and carefully chop mango. Finely chop all of the above ingredients. Be sure to discard jalapeno seeds and white part inside. Add all ingredients to a bowl and lightly toss together. Squeeze or pour lime juice over the top. Give it one more toss and enjoy.

Blackened Salmon Tacos

  • For the best crispy cook on the salmon please read the tips above in the blog post!
  • Pour oil in skillet and get skillet nice and hot on medium to high heat. Meanwhile season salmon with garlic, paprika, cayenne, chipotle and salt on both sides. Place salmon (skin side down in oil once skillet it hot. Cook for 4 -5 minutes each side.
  • Chop up cabbage and tomatoes and place to the side for toppings on the taco.
  • Once salmon is finished cooking I usually pull skin off, but this is your call! Flake it up with a fork into small bite size pieces. I like to heat my tortillas up and give them some char over my stove flame. Layer tortillas with cabbage, salmon, tomatoes and mango salsa. This dish is great with a side of mexican rice or some black beans if you need some more sustenance. Enjoy!

Notes

*Use white fish or chicken if you don't like salmon
*cabbage is optional
*If mangos are out of season or can't be found use peaches or strawberries.
