A slaw dressed in orange, sesame, and ginger, the heat of marinated jalapeños, and, best of all, fresh and creamy, a base of avocado are all part of the magic, combined together for bite after bite of pure perfection.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Crush wonton strips.

    Stem jalapeño, seed, remove ribs, and slice thinly. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    Pat salmon dry, and season flesh side with chile and cumin rub.

  2. 2

    Marinate Jalapeño and Dress Slaw

    Combine jalapeño and vinegar in a mixing bowl. Set aside to marinate, at least 10 minutes.

    While jalapeño marinates, in another mixing bowl, combine slaw mix and dressing. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Salmon

    In another mixing bowl, combine tempura mix and 1 Tbsp. water until a thin batter forms. If too thick, stir in additional 1 Tbsp. water.

    Place a salmon fillet in tempura batter, flesh side down. Coat flesh side completely.

    Transfer salmon to a plate, flesh side up, and top evenly with wontons, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. 4

    Cook the Salmon

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Add salmon, wonton side down, to hot pan and cook until golden-brown, 2-3 minutes.

    Flip, and cook until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Remove salmon to a plate. Flake salmon into 1/2" chunks. Remove and discard salmon skin.

  5. 5

    Prepare Avocado, Warm Tortillas, and Finish Dish

    Halve avocado and remove pit by carefully tapping pit with the blade of your knife so it sticks. Gently twist knife to release pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Cut into 1/4" slices.

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with avocado, slaw, marinated jalapeño (to taste), and salmon pieces. Bon appétit!
