Salmon Tacos

I have subscriptions to two magazines-Canadian Living and Everyday Food. Both have a lot of recipes that taste good and are quick to make.

When Jake saw this recipe in the Everyday Food Jan/Feb 2007 issue, he asked me to make it because it sounded interesting. So here it is!

1 1/4 lbs salmon fillet
1 lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
4 green onions, sliced

Place the salmon fillet into a shallow microwavable dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, drizzle with 1 tsp lime juice, and sprinkle 1/4 cup cilantro as well as the green onions over top. Put a lid on top and microwave on high for about 7 minutes. Drain well (seriously, or you have mushy salmon) when finished cooking. Flake with a fork. Serve with sauce and toppings.

1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1 tsp lime juice
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve with salmon and toppings.

8 six inch whole wheat flour tortillas
2 carrots, peeled into strips
4 cups shredded Romaine lettuce

When the salmon is cooked, each person takes 1 tortilla, and arranges salmon, lettuce, carrots, and a drizzle of sauce in the center. Roll up and eat! Serves 4, 2 tortillas per person.

While it was very tasty, microwaving the salmon made it a bit mushy. I plan to bake the salmon in the oven next time instead and add a little garlic, as well. On the other hand Jake thought it was very good, although he passed on the carrots and made me pick them off after this picture was taken.
