Method

  1. Heat the grill to high and line a large baking tray with foil. Mix the smoked paprika and cumin in a small bowl. Rub the spices over the salmon fillets and put them on the baking tray. Pop under the grill for 8-10 mins until cooked through.

  2. While the salmon cooks, combine the yogurt with the garlic and season to taste. In another bowl, combine the avocados, onion and tomatoes. Add the lime juice, season and scatter with coriander.

  3. Warm the taco shells in the oven, following pack instructions. Flake the salmon and serve with the tacos, avocado salsa, yogurt and lime wedges.

These were a real hit. They're easy to make and you can prepare it all ahead so there is little to do after work. I made both the yoghurt dip and salsa the night before and put the spices on the salmon so all I had to do was grill the salmon, warm the tacos and serve it up. I recommend turning your salmon fillets half way through so you don't end up with a soggy bottom and dry top. I found they took more like 14 min under my grill.

I've also used fresh tuna instead of salmon and this also works really well.
