  • For the salmon or steelhead more detail and photos in previous post
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs of choice - oregano thyme, etc.
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 – 4 ounce boneless skinless salmon or steelhead fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For tacos

  • slider tortillas 1 package, Mi Rancho brand
  • Guacamole homemade or purchased, about 2 cups
  • red cabbage thinly sliced, about 1 cup
  • ripe tomatoes diced, about 2 cups
  • feta cheese about 1/2 cup
  • thinly sliced red onion and cilantro for garnish
  • lime wedges


For the salmon or steelhead

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a shallow bowl mix the almond flour and seasonings.   Press fish fillets into almond flour mixture.
  • Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.  Add 1 tablespoon oil and sear one side of fish for 3 minutes. If you are using steelhead, this should be enough to allow you to remove the skin, if desired. 
  • Flip and sear for 3 more minutes.  
  • Place fish into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until the fish flakes and the almond flour coating is slightly browned.

For the tacos

  • Warm the tortillas in the oven or microwave until softened
  • Spread each tortilla with a layer of guacamole
  • Place about 2-3 tablespoons of flaked fish along the center of each tortilla
  • Place additional toppings as desired and top with a small dollop of guacamole and the cheese
  • Squeeze lime juice over each taco and serve with additional toppings
