Top Ten Main Dishes -- Amazing Salmon Tacos

Years ago I was searching for an amazing fish taco recipe, and I found this yummy recipe. Absolutely, hands down, no doubt about it, the best recipe for fish tacos. The fresh and light taste of lime and cilantro really let the salmon shine.
Amazing Salmon Tacos
recipe from recipezaar


1 lb salmon, skinned and cut into one inch cubes
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
14.5 0z can diced tomatoes, drained
4 oz can chopped green chilies
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 bunch green onion, chopped
2 lime, halved

small flour tortillas (we use wheat)
extra limes
fresh cilantro, to top tacos
avocado, sliced


Toss cubed salmon in cumin and chili powder. Set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook yellow onion in olive oil for 2 minutes, until it begins to soften. Turn heat up to medium high. Add salmon to skillet. Lightly sear salmon cubes for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Turn salmon gently, trying not to break the salmon into pieces. Return heat setting to medium. Add canned tomatoes and chilies, green onions, and 1/2 of the cilantro. Gently incorporate and heat through. You can drain off liquid at this point if you would like, I like my tacos juicy. Squeeze lime over salmon dish and get ready to serve. Serve with warm tortillas, salsa, sour cream, extra limes to add to individual tacos, fresh cilantro, spinach or romaine lettuce and sliced avocados.
