  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 4 6 to 7-ounce pieces salmon, pin bones removed, skin-on

  • For the tacos:

  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoon minced cilantro

Instructions

  • To make salmon: In a small bowl combine the spices. Put the mixture on a plate or other flat surface and coat the portions of salmon, 1 at a time, on the flesh side only. Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan or cast-iron skillet over medium heat, and add the oil. Add the salmon flesh side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until the skin is crispy. Once the salmon has slightly cooled, peel the skin away with a fork and shred into large chunks.
  • To assemble Char the tortillas on the stovetop (gas stoves only) until the edges are lightly burnt. Fill each tortilla with lettuce, tomato, onion, about 1/2 of each salmon fillet, a sprinkle of cilantro, a drizzle of fresh lime and a drizzle of sour cream or salsa.
