      Directions

      Eight 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed

      Adjust an oven rack with the broiler pan to the top rack and preheat the broiler to high heat.

      For the salmon: Combine the smoked paprika, cumin, thyme, cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle the salmon evenly on both sides with the spice rub. Place the salmon on the hot broiler pan and broil until opaque and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove the salmon to a plate and use a fork to flake the fish and break into chunks.

      For the pico de gallo: Combine the tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro, onion, garlic, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl.

      For the guacamole: Combine the avocado, tomato, jalapeno, yogurt, red onion, cilantro, garlic, lime juice and salt in a medium bowl. Mash together until combined but still a bit chunky.

      To serve, spread the guacamole on a warmed tortilla and top with chunks of salmon and pico do gallo.
