Salmon Soft Tacos
Gina Casagrande, MS, RD, LD, of


For the Salmon
1.5 pounds fresh, preferably wild, salmon
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
For the Soft Taco
6 whole wheat soft tortillas
1.5 cups broccoli slaw
1 avocado
2 limes
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup cilantro
your favorite salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray and place the salmon on the sheet, skin-side down.
  3. Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, arrange the other ingredients for your soft taco.
  5. Warm your tortillas in a skillet until slightly brown.
  6. Once the salmon is finished you can build your soft taco! I prefer this order; soft taco shell, broccoli slaw, salmon, lime juice, cilantro, avocado, plain Greek yogurt and salsa (you can mix the two together if you’d like).
