Blackened salmon tacos with lime sour cream drizzle
Serves 4


For the blackened salmon:
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
4 x 180g salmon fillets, skin-on
1 tbsp olive oil


For the tacos:
100g sour cream
Juice of 1 lime
8 small flour tortillas
1 head of cos lettuce, chopped
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
Handful of fresh coriander, chopped


  1. In a wide, shallow bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Dip the flesh sides of the salmon fillets in to coat in the spices.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan over a medium heat. Add the salmon fillets, flesh side down, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip them over and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the skin is crispy. Transfer to a plate and allow to cool slightly, then use a fork to remove the skins and flake the salmon into large chunks.
  3. In a bowl, stir together the sour cream and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Fill each tortilla with the blackened salmon and some lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, some chopped coriander and a drizzle of the lime sour cream.
