Fish tacos have become all the rage in recent years and are a specialty of the Pacific coast of Southern California and Mexico. This is a simple recipe: all the components can be made ahead of time and the fish grilled at the last moment. You can also use halibut, sea bass or tilapia in place of the salmon.
2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon   ancho or New Mexico chile powder
1 tablespoon   fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon   kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon   freshly ground pepper
4   4-ounce wild salmon fillets, about 1-inch thick, skin on
8   6-inch corn or flour tortillas, warmed
Cabbage Slaw  (see recipe link above)
Citrus salsa  (see recipe link above)
Cilantro crema  (see recipe link above)

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Combine oil, chile powder, lime juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the spice mixture liberally over salmon. Grill the salmon, skin-side down, until it is just cooked through, about 8 minutes. Cut each fillet lengthwise into 2 pieces and remove the skin.

To serve, place 2 tortillas on each plate. Evenly divide the fish, Cabbage Slaw, Citrus Salsa and Cilantro Crema among the tortillas.

EatingWell does it again!
As usual, EatingWell produced another great recipe. We all loved the salmon tacos, even my kids. We liked all the supporting recipes too, although we found we preferred the Mexican Slaw on the side, rather than in the tacos. The Citrus Salsa and Cilantro Crema really made the salmon pop! I don't think I ever had an EatingWell recipe turn out bad.
