Summary

Succulent grilled salmon with avocado is one of my favorite flavor pairings. Add roasted tomatoes, lime and classic soft corn taco ingredients and you’ve got an effortless meal with plenty of rich flavors and zing!

The ingredient section isn’t accepting all my ingredients, so add these:

1 salmon steak
1 avocado
1 lime

Instructions

  1. 1Sprinkle salt, black pepper and plenty of thyme leaves onto both sides of a fresh salmon steak.
  2. 2Cut two tomatoes in half and coat them with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme as well.
  3. 3Place the salmon and tomatoes on the grill and cook until the salmon is medium rare, turning one time. It is important to not overcook the salmon, you want it to retain its natural juices and flavors. It’s better to place the tomatoes cut side down first, because if you place the skin side down first and then turn it over, the juices will escape.
  4. 4While the salmon and tomatoes are on the grill, prepare your other ingredients. Cut the lime into wedges, shred the cheese, slide your avocado, and preheat a non-stick pan on medium-low for the tortillas.
  5. 5When the salmon and tomatoes are ready, very quickly run a corn tortilla through a low faucet stream and hold it over the sink for a moment to allow the excess water to drain off. Toss it into the pan and allow to heat until the water on the surface has evaporated. Flip and allow to heat for 10-20 seconds and remove.
  6. 6Rough chop the roasted tomatoes and assemble your tacos! Be sure to sprinkle chili lime salt and squeeze a little lime juice onto your salmon-avocado tacos! It’s perfect with a great beer!
