When fresh fish is available, I pull out my salmon taco recipe and fire up the grill. Try it with whitefish or mahi mahi, too. —Brenda Washnocok, Negaunee, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 chipotle peppers plus 2 teaspoons adobo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 pounds salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • SLAW:
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • ASSEMBLY:
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed

Directions

Place oil, citrus juices, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, soy sauce, garlic and oregano in a blender; cover and process until blended. Pour half of the marinade into a 13x9-in. dish. Add salmon, skin side down. Turn fillets to coat both sides; refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes. Reserve remaining marinade for basting fish.
For slaw, in a large bowl, whisk vinegar, oil, sugar, salt and pepper until blended. Add cabbages, onion and cilantro; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat well. Remove salmon from marinade; discard any remaining marinade in dish.
Place salmon on grill rack, skin side down. Grill, covered, over medium heat 5 minutes. Spoon some of the reserved marinade over fish. Grill 4-6 minutes longer or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, basting occasionally with remaining marinade.
Break fish into bite-size pieces, removing skin if desired. Serve in tortillas with slaw. Yield: 12 servings.
