On the finish of August, for our final summer time hurrah, me, the hubby & our 7 yr previous spent the week in Whidbey Island, simply north of Seattle, the place two units of my uncles and aunts are living.

So, in fact, I got here house yearning all issues salmon. And whilst not anything beats getting it contemporary from the Pacific Ocean (or the North Sea for that subject), Dealer Joe’s frozen salmon fillets are my same old go-to again house.

Have you ever ever make tostadas? They’re so really easy – you bake your tortillas for five mins at 400 levels F, then turn them, upload your toppings and warmth every other 5 mins and dinner is served.

I finished up doing a riff on my Sweetpotato & Kale Tostadas the usage of grilled salmon and jarred roasted pink peppers together with Cabot Jalapeño Gentle Cheddar (I’m person who ignores the “seafood and cheese don’t combine” rule.)

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 pound salmon fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 4 oz. Cabot Jalapeño Gentle Cheddar, shredded
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar of roasted pink peppers chopped (about 1 cup chopped)
  • Cilantro leaves
  • Lemon wedges

  1. Preheat oven to 400 levels Fahrenheit.
  2. Position a grill pan or skillet over medium-high warmth and upload oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over salmon fillets. Prepare dinner salmon, pores and skin facet up, for three – 4 mins then turn. Prepare dinner every other 3 -4 mins till salmon is cooked thru and flakes simply. (You must have the ability to simply take away salmon from the surface, which is able to keep on with the pan.)
  3. Cool salmon for five mins after which flake with a fork.
  4. On two cookie sheets lined with cooking spray, upload tortillas and installed oven. Bake for five mins and take away from oven. Turn tortillas and divide cheese, salmon and roasted peppers amongst all 8 tortillas. Get started by way of sprinkling cheese on every tortilla adopted by way of cooked salmon after which roasted peppers. Go back to oven. Bake for every other 5 mins or till cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy.
  5. Ahead of serving, sprinkle every tostada with a couple of contemporary cilantro leaves and a squeeze of lemon juice.

So so excellent and prefer I mentioned, so really easy.
