Spicy Harissa Salmon Tacos with Fresh Mango Salsa

Chosen Team

Tacos are the Baja California version of sandwiches (most of the time, anyway). In this vibrant recipe, we've transformed everyday tortillas into the ultimate summertime handhelds with creamy Harissa Mayo, flaked salmon, mango salsa, red cabbage and—of course—sliced avocados.

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6-8


For the Salmon

  • 1.5 pounds of salmon (preferably wild) 
  • 2 tablespoons Chosen Foods Avocado Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the Salsa

  • 1 mango, peeled and diced into cubes
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely diced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For Serving

  • ¼- ½ cup of Chosen Foods Harissa Mayo
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup shredded cabbage
  • ¼ cup cotija or feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 limes, sliced
  • 8-12 tortillas of choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  2. In a bowl, mix together the spices. Pat down the salmon to make sure it's dry, then rub the salmon with avocado oil and coat evenly with the spice mix.
  3. Place the salmon on a lined baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until cooked through (so it's not opaque in the middle).
  4. While the salmon is baking, mix all salsa ingredients in a bowl and store it in the fridge until ready to serve. The salsa can be made the day before to save time.
  5. Flake the cooked salmon into pieces using a fork and place into a bowl.
  6. Heat the tortillas in the oven or right over a gas burner.
  7. Assemble the tacos by layering flaked salmon and desired toppings on each tortilla. Top with Harissa Mayo for the perfect level of spice.
