Then he said he was going to grill peppers & onions to go in them as well. Wait, grilled protein, peppers & onions, isn't that a fajita? But then he was also going to add a fish taco sauce. Ok, so what are we having fish fajitas or fish tacos?
You know what? These taste so good who cares whether they're called fajitas or tacos. The grilled vegetables & sauce both have enough flavor to stand up to the salmon without overpowering it. The ancho on the salmon & cayenne in the sauce give the whole thing a nice kick. Plus these are pretty healthy, especially if you use the light mayo & non-fat yogurt in the sauce like we did. Yeah, I think we have a new fajita for our repertoire...or is it a taco...
Salmon Fajitas (or Tacos)
3/4 lb salmon fillet (pin bones removed)
ancho chile powder
2 poblano peppers, seeded & cut into strips
1 red onion, sliced
4 - 5 tortillas
Fish Taco Sauce (see recipe below)
Sprinkle the salmon with a little kosher salt. Rub a little ancho chile powder & dill onto the salmon. Grill the salmon fillets until cooked through & flaky.
At the same time grill the peppers & onion until tender. We use a grill basket to do this.
Remove the skin from the salmon & flake the meat. Place on a warm tortilla & top with vegetables & Fish Taco Sauce.
Makes 4 - 5 fajitas (tacos)
