25 – 35 Minutes
Get to know the savory-sweet flavors of Chinese five-spice powder in these quick-cooking, gluten-free tacos.
- 1 romaine heart
- 1 cucumber
- 1 lemon
- 2 or 3 sprigs fresh mint
- 2 or 3 sprigs fresh cilantro
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt
- 2 skin-on wild Yukon River salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each)
- 1½ teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
- 8 Mi Rancho 100% corn tortillas
- 3 tablespoons roasted pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup pickled jalapeños (optional)
You can turn your remaining tortillas into chips: Heat the oven to 350°F. Cut the tortillas into wedges. On a sheet pan, drizzle the wedges with 1 to 2 teaspoons neutral oil, season generously with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.
Prep the garnishes
- Trim the root end from the romaine heart; tear the leaves into thin strips.
- Using a peeler, cut the cucumber into thin ribbons.
- Zest the lemon and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; cut half into wedges for garnish.
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
Prep and cook the salmon
- Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. Rub the salmon on both sides with the five-spice powder.
While the salmon cooks, heat the tortillas.
Warm the tortillas
- Remove 6 tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
