Units Scale

6 4” flour tortillas

For the salmon

12 ounces salmon filets

1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons furikake

2 tablespoons panko

Pepper, to taste

For the veggie slaw

2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced

1 scallion, thinly sliced (or to taste)

1/4 cup cilantro, torn or roughly chopped

1/4 cup bell pepper (red, yellow, or orange), sliced into thin matchsticks

For the slaw dressing

1/4 cup canola oil

1/8 cup rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon sriracha, or to taste (optional)

For the garnish

4 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Sriracha, or to taste

Toasted sesame seeds

Lime wedges


For the salmon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Lay salmon, skin-side down, on the baking sheet. Season lightly with fresh ground pepper (salt is not needed as there is salt from the soy sauce in the mayonnaise and from the furikake).

Mix together the furikake and panko. Set aside.

Combine the mayonnaise and soy sauce. Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the salmon filets. Top each fillet with the furikake/panko mixture. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Flake the salmon into bite-sized chunks.

For the veggie slaw

Measure the dressing ingredients into a half-pint mason jar. Close the jar and shake the ingredients to combine. Set aside.

Toss all the slaw vegetables together in a bowl. Add half of the dressing and toss well. Add more dressing if needed. Set aside.

To assemble the tacos

While the salmon is baking, combine the mayonnaise and sriracha.

Lightly toast the flour tortillas in a dry frying pan over medium heat – about 30-60 seconds per side.

To assemble the tacos, layer in the salmon and slaw. Drizzle with the sriracha mayo and top with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds. Serve with a squeeze of lime juice.


Feel free to use a pre-packaged slaw mix.
