Ingredients

2 tablespoons minced red onion

2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 clove garlic, minced

Juice of half a lime

Pinch kosher salt

Eight 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed

Salmon:

1 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Kosher salt

One 1-pound piece salmon filet, skin removed

Pico De Gallo:

2 plum tomatoes, diced

1/2 jalapeno, seeded and minced

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons minced red onion

1 clove garlic, minced

Juice of half a lime

Pinch kosher salt

Guacamole:

1 ripe avocado, diced

1 plum tomato, diced

1/2 jalapeno, seeded and minced

2 tablespoons non-fat Greek yogurt

Directions

  1. Adjust an oven rack with the broiler pan to the top rack and preheat the broiler to high heat.
  2. 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. 
  3. For the pico de gallo: Combine the tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro, onion, garlic, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl. 
  4. 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. 
  5. To serve, spread the guacamole on a warmed tortilla and top with chunks of salmon and pico do gallo.
