RAGIN CAJUN SALMON TACOS WITH MANGO SALSA AND CILANTRO CREMA

RAGIN’ CAJUN SALMON TACOS WITH MANGO SALSA AND CILANTRO CREMA


Mango Salsa:

1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters

1 large mango, peeled, pitted, and chopped

1 cup onion, finely chopped

1 jalapeno, minced

¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves, packed and rough chopped

½ tsp. salt

1 tsp. cumin

1 Tbs. sugar (if your mangoes are very sweet, use a little less sugar)

¼ cup olive oil

1 Tbs. lime fresh squeezed lime juice


Cilantro Crema:

1 cup sour cream

¾ cup heavy cream

1/3 cup cilantro leaves, packed

½ tsp. salt


1 ½ lbs. salmon filet, skinned

4 tsp. Dish off the Block Ragin’ Cajun Spice Blend (or your favorite brand)

2 Tbs. olive oil

1 cup pepper jack or cheddar jack cheese

8-10, 6” flour tortillas

1 cup purple cabbage, chopped

2 limes, quartered


Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a small bowl and mix to combine.  Set aside and let flavors meld while you prepare the fish.


To make the crema, combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and cilantro is fully incorporated.  Transfer to a squeeze bottle or bowl.  Crema will thicken slightly as it sits and any extra can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 weeks (if it gets thicker than you like simply add a little cream or milk).


Rub the salmon filet on both sides with the Cajun seasoning.   Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Place the seasoned filet in the hot oil, top side down, and sear for 2 minutes.  Flip the filet over and cover the pan and cook for 2-3 more minutes until the salmon is JUST cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.  Remove from heat, top evenly with the cheese and cover again to let cheese melt.


Heat a grill pan or frying pan over medium high heat and toast the tortillas until lightly browned, about 1 minute per side.


To assemble the tacos place a piece of Cajun salmon with melted cheese down the center of the tortilla and top with cabbage, salsa, and drizzle with crema.  Serve with lime wedges on the side.
