Alaska Salmon Tacos
This recipe offers a quick, easy, and delicious way to enjoy canned wild salmon, either Boneless/Skinless or our Traditional Style, with skin, calcium-rich bones and even deeper flavor.
2 cans (7.5 oz. each) traditional style or skinless-boneless Wild Red salmon, drained and chunked
1/2 cup fresh or bottled non-fat salsa
12 (6.5 inch) corn tortillas
3/4 cup fat-free refried beans
1/4 cup fat-free Cheddar cheese
2 cups cabbage or lettuce, shredded
3/4 cup fresh tomato, chopped
Salsa, to taste
Cilantro, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix salmon with salsa and hold aside. Place the tortillas on sheet pans in 1 single layer; portion beans and cheese evenly onto the tortillas. Place in oven until warm and cheese is melted (5-8 minutes).
Remove from oven and divide salmon mixture evenly among the tortillas. Top with cabbage or lettuce and diced tomatoes (portioned evenly). Fold tortillas over and serve with extra salsa and chopped cilantro, if desired.
Variations: Salmon mixture may also be used as burrito or tostada filling.
