Charred Salmon Tacos


These Charred Salmon Tacos are made by charring the salmon so that a simple glaze forms over top, which adds extra flavor. Besides salmon, the tacos are filled with avocado, pico de gallo and additional lime juice, making these an easy weeknight meal.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Mix the seasonings together on a plate, then dip the salmon into it and place it directly into your skillet skin side down.
  3. Place the skillet into the oven and bake the salmon for 8-12 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked. While the salmon is baking, whisk the lime juice and olive oil together.
  4. Once the salmon is cooked, remove it from the oven and drizzle the lime juice/olive oil mixture over top. Use your Bernzomatic TS8000 torch to char the salmon for 30-60 seconds, which will add tons of flavor to it. Then, use a fork to shred the salmon.
  5. Assemble the tacos: Add salmon, avocado, pico de gallo, cabbage, and lime juice to each taco shell and enjoy!
