Recipe Source From: www.jessicagavin.com
A touch of sweet and spicy maple glazed chipotle salmon tacos are a quick and healthy meal bursting with flavor. Served with a fresh mango salsa.
1 pound salmon cut into 6 even portions (about 1 to 1 ½ inches)
kosher salt as needed to season fish
black pepper as needed to season fish
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper ground
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin ground
3 teaspoons maple syrup pure
1/2 cup mango diced
1/4 cup red onion diced
1 cup tomato diced
1/2 cup avocado diced
2 tablespoons lime juice plus zest of 1 lime
6 tortillas corn or flour, 6 inch
- Set oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 400°F.
Line a sheet pan with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or olive oil. Evenly spread out the salmon fillets on the tray. Generously season the fillets with salt and pepper.
- Combine chipotle pepper, paprika and cumin together in a small bowl. Evenly sprinkle about ¼ teaspoon of the spice mixture on top of the salmon. Evenly drizzle each fillet with ¼ teaspoon maple syrup (more if needed), spread evenly on top.
Roast for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 130-135°F. The fish should easily flake apart but not be dry.
In a medium sized bowl, combine mango, red onion, tomato, avocado, lime juice and lime zest. Warm tortillas in a pan. Serve one piece of salmon on each tortilla and top with salsa. Add additional toppings if desired.RECIPE NOTESCayenne or chili pepper can be substituted for chipotle pepper. Chili pepper will not be as spicy.
