Speedy Salmon Fajitas

One of the downsides of always trying something new is that you often forget to have the things you enjoy. I have a huge binder full of recipes I enjoy (seriously, this thing is huge). Some come from family and friends, some come from recipe books, and some come from magazines and websites. Some recipes I can no longer have and they are gradually being crossed out while others can be converted into gf options. One of my goals this year is to go through my cookbook and try out the dishes I miss. It is a wonderful opportunity to fall in love again.

One of these recipes is salmon fajitas that are quite easy and quick to make. Now that there are gluten-free tortillas available, having burritos and fajitas can become a regular thing. Here in Ottawa many stores (health food and major chains) carry La Tortilla Factory or Food for Life rice or corn tortillas. I tend to use whatever I come across as they can sometimes be hard to find. I also find they can be a little finicky and fall apart easily (so have them while they’re ‘fresh’).

And if you’re not a fan of fish, other meat or a combination of vegetables could be used instead. It’s a nice healthy meal that can be quickly put together after getting home from work.

Speedy Salmon Fajitas     (makes 4)
4 portions of salmon fillet
2 tsp each cumin & oregano
1 ½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp salt & pepper
1 cup corn
½ cup each avocado & tomato, diced
¼ cup each green onion & cilantro, chopped
2 limes, cut into halves
1 tbs olive oil
4 large tortillas
Shredded lettuce
Cut salmon into cubes and toss in the spices. Set aside. Toss corn with avocado, tomato, onion, and cilantro. Squeeze one lime over top and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil over medium heat and stir fry the salmon until browned and pink. Squeeze one lime over the salmon. Serve with remaining ingredients in tortillas.
