Alaska Salmon Chile-Citrus Tacos Recipe | Alaska Gold Seafood


  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 Serrano chile, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 tbsp. frozen orange juice concentrate
  • Alaska Gold Coho Salmon portions
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 small (6 to 7-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • 2 large, navel oranges, peeled, pithed and segmented
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves


Combine garlic, chile and 1 tablespoon oil in a heavy nonstick skillet. Sauté over medium heat until garlic and chile are soft. Remove pan from heat; place garlic and chile in a small bowl. When cool, add water and juice concentrate; blend.

Rinse any ice glaze from salmon portions under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Return skillet to medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with remaining oil. Place coho salmon portions in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

Turn portions over and season with salt and pepper. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 to 4 minutes for thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Remove skin, if any, and break into large chunks.

To serve, divide salmon among tortillas. Top with 2 to 3 orange slices, 1 tablespoon red onion slices, 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves and 1/2 tablespoon chile-citrus sauce.
