Blackened Salmon Tacos

Mar 01, 2023 06:00AM ● By Kristy Mayer

Yield: 8 servings

4 salmon filets, 4 oz each 

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

8 small corn tortillas

The blackening rub:

1½ tsp paprika

1½ tsp cumin

1½ tsp dark brown sugar

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp onion powder

½ tsp kosher salt

½ tsp chili powder

¼ tsp black pepper

The slaw:

2 cups broccoli slaw

2 cups shredded purple cabbage

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp mayonnaise

2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped

2 small jalapeños, seeds removed and chopped

1 Tbsp lime juice

In a small bowl, combine and mix the paprika, cumin, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, chili powder and black pepper. Sprinkle over the flesh side of the fish, reserving about 1 teaspoon for the slaw. 

Preheat a medium skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and coat the pan evenly. Place the salmon in the preheated pan, flesh side down, and allow it to sizzle for 4 minutes to allow it to brown. Flip it to the skin side and cover the pan for the last 4 minutes or until it reaches the desired temperature.

Meanwhile, combine the slaw ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Heat the corn tortillas. Fill each with about 2 ounces of salmon and about ¼ cup of slaw.
