Salmon Tacos With Our Wild Caught Alaskan Coho Salmon

For your next Taco Tuesday, try out fish tacos with our wild caught Alaskan coho salmon fillets. Our co-founders recently went on essential business to Alaska where they hand picked the fishermen and boats (and caught some salmon themselves) to source based on quality and sustainable practices. I haven’t seen salmon used as much for tacos as other types of fish, but I’m so glad that I gave it a try. The meaty and satisfying qualities of this fish lends itself perfectly to balance the lightness of salsa and lime juice.

Salmon Tacos With Our Wild Caught Alaskan Coho Salmon - Beck & Bulow

The Freshest, Highest Quality Salmon You Can Get

We’re currently offering four types of Alaskan salmon – king, sockeye, coho and keta. They are all caught by family fishermen that we purchase directly from. We know them by name and have seen the way they catch and process their fish. These fishermen harvest from the coasts of their local community, meaning they care about keeping their salmon populations sustainable for the long term. When you purchase salmon from larger companies, it often sits on boats for longer, takes more time to process, and then sits in a display at a store before you buy it. Since we purchase directly from Alaskan fishermen, this salmon is the freshest you can get without catching it yourself.

Wild Caught Salmon From Fishermen We Know By Name

All of our fish are caught using a hook and fishing line. They never go through the machinery that salmon canneries use, which negatively affects the taste and texture of the fish. Most commercially caught fish also sit around on the boat before being bled out, which negatively affects the taste and quality of the meat. These salmon are bled right away on the boat, resulting in the most premium and flavorful salmon you can get. They’re then pressure sealed and flash frozen at the peak of freshness.

With these methods, having our flash frozen salmon delivered to you is actually highly preferable to buying fresh, unfrozen salmon unless you happen to be or live next door to a skilled fisherman. And even if that’s the case, the waters we source from off the Alaskan coast are some of the most pristine on the planet, making it very unlikely to find better fish anywhere else.

Coho salmon, also known as silver salmon, have a medium oil content but regardless are considered one of the best tasting varieties. Many who prefer a milder, lighter tasting salmon prize the coho above all others. Their significant oil content makes this variety flaky and buttery. Anyone who loves salmon but prefers a more subtle flavor will find that coho is a perfect fit. This variety of salmon is the perfect choice for a dish like fish tacos!

Instructions:

  1. Thaw the coho salmon fillets and pat gently dry with paper towels. Place in a shallow dish and season evenly all over with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and Cajun seasoning.
  2. Heat the avocado oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon to the skillet once the oil is hot (but not smoking) skin side down. Cook for approximately 5-6 minutes. Flip to the other side and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the salmon is flaky and cooked all the way through. Transfer the salmon to a plate to cool, then pull apart unto large pieces for the tacos.
  3. Heat the corn tortillas in the skillet.
  4. Assemble the tacos by distributing the salmon evenly in the corn tortillas. Top with a squeeze of lime juice, salsa, sliced avocado and chopped cilantro. Garnish with lime wedges. Serve and enjoy immediately.
