healthy eating: salmon tacos

I must admit, I cannot resist Mexican food, although some of the California gourmet variations are not the true sense of the cuisine.  But either way, I do appreciate all the attempts to spin off from the original Mexican style taco and embrace them in my own home.

With that said, I have found this really interesting Salmon taco recipe here which  I have added to my list of healthy meals for the family. Hope you like it.

Santa Fe Salsa

  • 1 can(s) (11 ounce) mexi corn, drained
  • 1 cup(s) cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 1/2 cup(s) black beans, rinced, drained
  • 1/2 cup(s) shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup(s) green chile salsa
  • 1/4 cup(s) diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh cilantro


  • 2  (about 1 1/2 pounds) salmon steaks, 1-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon(s) jalapeno and lime flavored olive oil, or any favorite flavored or plain olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 8  taco shells
  • Shredded romaine or iceberg lettuce for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the salsa ingredients; set aside.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush oil over salmon steaks; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook salmon in skillet 3 to 4 minutes per side, for medium-rare. Remove from heat; let cool slightly then break up into chunks.
  4. Spoon salmon into taco shells, dividing evenly; top with corn salsa. Garnish with lettuce.
