These colorful and vibrant Salmon Lettuce ‘Tacos’ are the perfect, simple summer dish and contain anti-inflammatory ingredients to boost skin and overall health. Salmon is a skin health superfood as its rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which help calm inflammation, retain moisture, and maintain skin elasticity. It is also rich in Vitamin D, which helps protect the skin against free radicals. And avocados are high in beneficial fats and contain Vitamins E and C which are important for healthy skin. Read on for the recipe.

Ingredients 

• 1 ½ tbsp everyday seasoning salt

• 2 fresh salmon fillets

• 2 ½ cups pre-packaged coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage 

• ½ cup cilantro, chopped

• 1 lime, juiced

• 2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil 

• 1 head of butter lettuce

• 1 orange, sliced into sections

1/4 cup avocado sauce:

• ½ avocado, pitted

• ½ cup cilantro, fresh

• ½ jalapeño, seeded (adjust to taste)

• ½ cup paleo mayo

• ¼ cup water

• 2 tbsp lime juice, fresh (adjust to taste)

• 1 garlic clove

• ½ tsp salt

Method

To prepare your avocado sauce, add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender and mix until smooth. Next, season the salmon fillets generously with everyday seasoning salt (or your favorite seasoning) and drizzle each with a little avocado oil. Grill them on a medium high heat for 5-8 minutes, turning them once. Cook just until fillets easily flake but are still moist and set them aside to cool. In a small mixing bowl, combine coleslaw mix with chopped cilantro leaves and the juice of one lime and add salt to taste. Rinse and dry butter lettuce leaves and then assemble the wraps by breaking apart the cooled salmon fillets placing them in the wraps and covering them with the coleslaw mix.  Finish each lettuce wrap taco with a dollop of the avocado sauce and the juice from an orange slice. Enjoy!
