Chili-Lime Salmon Tacos with Pineapple-Basil Salsa

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 lb boneless salmon fillet
  • 2 limes
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cups diced pineapple
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chiffonade or chopped
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 8 small corn or flour tortillas
  • sour cream


  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay the salmon skin-side-down on the foil. Squeeze the juice from one lime over the salmon, sprinkle a little bit of salt & pepper on the fillet, then sprinkle the chili powder all over.
  2. Turn the oven on BROIL and place the rack on the second-to-highest shelf. It should take about 10 minutes, assuming your fillet is around 1″ thick.
  3. While the salmon is cooking, chop the pineapple, basil, and onion. Mix together with the corn and juice from the other lime.
  4. Heat the tortillas over a flame (to char slightly, or use whatever method you prefer).
  5. Serve the tacos with sour cream, extra limes, and any other garnishes you want!
