  • 3 extra thin Mission corn tortillas
  • 3.5 oz blackened salmon 100 g. If using leftover, microwave for just 15-30 seconds.
  • 1 oz avocado 28 g
  • 1/2 tbs cotija cheese 7 g
  • 3 tbs pico 45 g - recipe below
  • Pinch of fresh corn 20 g
  • Chopped fresh mango 20 g
  • Shredded cabbage
  • 2 tbs lightened up creamy cilantro lime ranch
  • Fresh lime and cilantro
  • For the Pico de gallo just chop everything small and combine in a bowl!: (Macros for 60 g=12 Cal/ 2.4C/0F/0.6P-- pretty much nothing)
  • 2-3 roma tomatoes scoop out insides with your fingers 240 g
  • 1/2 a small onion red or white! 140 g
  • 1 bunch cilantro 20 g
  • 1 jalapeño 30 g
  • Pinch 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 lime juiced


  • Heat tortillas in a pan over medium/high heat until hot and flexible, spraying each side with a mist of cooking spray. Sprinkle with a little salt. OR if you love them charred, cook them right over your stove top flame till you've got little burned spots and flip!
  • Build tacos by dividing each component between the three tortillas.  Start with salmon, then a slice of avocado, sprinkle of cotija cheese, pico, corn, mango, cabbage, and a drizzle of cilantro lime ranch. Spritz with fresh lime juice and add extra cilantro if you love it!
