Grilled Salmon Tacos with Corn Salsa

These fresh tacos are perfect for warmer weather.  You can make your own guacamole or purchase a good quality one in the fresh produce section of your local market.  The tacos are even more delicious when you plank grill your salmon, but either way they are a crowd pleaser!

Yields: 
4 servings

Ingredients: 

Salmon:

1¼-pounds fresh salmon fillets

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoons Fire & Flavor’s Salmon Rub

Juice of ½ lime

Tacos:

1 tablespoon butter

4 ears fresh corn, cut off the cob (about 2 cups)

½ red bell pepper, diced

Juice of ½ lime

3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

½ small red onion, sliced very thin

Fresh guacamole

8 corn tortillas, heated on grill

Lime wedges for garnish

Directions:

Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat.  Drizzle salmon with olive oil, sprinkle with Salmon Rub, and season lightly with salt.  Grill salmon, flesh side down, for 4 minutes.  Turn and cook, skin side down, until just cooked through, about 3-4 more minutes.  Remove salmon from grill and squeeze with fresh lime juice; set aside. 

While salmon is cooking, heat butter in a medium skillet set over medium-low heat.  Sauté corn and red pepper until corn is tender (about 8 minutes).  Stir in lime juice and cilantro and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

To assemble tacos, spread 1 tablespoon guacamole onto each tortilla, top with salmon, corn salsa, and red onion.  Serve with fresh lime wedges.
