ALASKA SALMON CHILE-CITRUS TACOS

May 08, 2016

This delicious salmon taco recipe is the perfect quick weeknight meal!  It is one of our favorite ways to cook Wild Alaskan Salmon using Alaska Seafood's COOK IT FROZEN!® technique.

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Servings: 4 (2 tacos each)

1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Serrano chile, seeded and chopped
2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons frozen orange juice
4 Alaska Salmon fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen Salt and pepper, to taste
8 small (6 to 7-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
2 large, navel oranges, peeled, pithed and segmented
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Combine garlic, chile and 1 Tablespoon oil in a heavy nonstick skillet. Sauté over medium heat until garlic and chile are soft. Remove pan from heat; place garlic and chile in a small bowl. When cool, add water and juice concentrate; blend.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Return skillet to medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with remaining oil. Place fillets in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking. Turn fillets over and season with salt and pepper. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium.

Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen salmon or 3 to 4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.

Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Remove skin, if any, and break into large chunks.

To serve, divide salmon among tortillas. Top with 2 to 3 orange slices, 1 tablespoon red onion slices, 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves and 1/2 tablespoon chile-citrus sauce.
