  • Cabbage or broccoli/carrot mix premade package
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Salt

Pico de Gallo

  • 1/2 cup of English cucumber, cut into tiny cubes for the extra crunch and freshness
  • ¼ cup diced onions
  • ½ cup of diced Roma Tomatoes
  • ½ bunch of chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Season with salt and pepper to liking

Sour Cream

  • Optional- often made from dairy. Please read labels. Alternatives are available, great one Avocado.

Corn Tortilla

  • 2 cups of Maseca
  • Water
  • 1.5 teaspoon of salt



  1. Drizzle olive to grease pan
  2. Season it with garlic salt, butter, and a few lemon slices on top
  3. Bake salmon for 10minutes at 400 degrees in a conventional oven
  4. Broil for an additional 2 minutes to get crispy golden edges

Corn Tortilla

  1. Starting off with 1.5 cups of water, mix ingredients thoroughly 
  2. Add water by the teaspoon only (as needed). Consistency should feel softer than play-doh but not runny.
  3. Knead thoroughly, put all of the dough in a big ball and let sit with a moist towel for 15 minutes. 
  4. Divide dough in ping pong sized balls equal in size
  5. Line the tortilla press with a plastic sheet (I use a regular zip lock bag cut all four side). If you don’t have a press, use a two flat surfaces with plastic lining
  6. Heat skillet on medium heat 
  7. After pressed, carefully remove tortilla from plastic 
  8. Cook on skillet for 30 sec on each side- Turn 3 times
  9. When you see the tortilla expand from heat, you know it is done
  10. Cover in a cloth napkin to keep war and repeat process

Place 3-4 spoons full of salmon on fresh tortilla, lay slaw, first, then place Pico de Gallo and top with sour cream and/or avocado or any substitute that is right for your household. Serve with rice and/or beans. Enjoy!
