Alaska Salmon Chile-Citrus Tacos Recipe Ingredients

1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Serrano chile, seeded and chopped
2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
Alaska Gold™ coho salmon portions

Salt and pepper, to taste

8 small (6 to 7-inch) flour tortillas, warmed

2 large, navel oranges, peeled, pithed and segmented
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Alaska Salmon Chile-Citrus Tacos Recipe Directions

Combine garlic, chile and 1 Tablespoon oil in a heavy nonstick skillet.  Sauté over medium heat until garlic and chile are soft.  Remove pan from heat; place garlic and chile in a small bowl.  When cool, add water and juice concentrate; blend.

Rinse any ice glaze from salmon portions under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.  Return skillet to medium-high heat.  Brush both sides of salmon with remaining oil.  Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned.  Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

Turn fillets over and season with salt and pepper.  Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium.  Cook 3 to 4 minutes for thawed fish.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.  Remove skin, if any, and break into large chunks.

To serve, divide salmon among tortillas.  Top with 2 to 3 orange slices, 1 tablespoon red onion slices, 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves and 1/2 tablespoon chile-citrus sauce.
