  • Yield: servings


For the Salmon
1.5pounds fresh, preferably wild, salmon
1teaspoon garlic powder
1teaspoon cumin
1/4teaspoon chili powder
-- salt and pepper to taste
For the Soft Taco
6-- whole wheat soft tortillas
1.5cups broccoli slaw
1-- avocado
2-- limes
1/2cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4cup cilantro
-- your favorite salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray and place the salmon on the sheet, skin-side down. 
  3. Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes. 
  4. Meanwhile, arrange the other ingredients for your soft taco.
  5. Warm your tortillas in a skillet until slightly brown. 
  6. Once the salmon is finished you can build your soft taco! I prefer this order; soft taco shell, broccoli slaw, salmon, lime juice, cilantro, avocado, plain Greek yogurt and salsa (you can mix the two together if you'd like).
