Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 salmon fillets, skin on (6 oz each)
  • 1 tablespoon Old El Paso™ chicken taco seasoning mix (from 0.85-oz package)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, mix sour cream, cilantro, lime peel, lime juice, honey and salt; set aside.
  • 2
    Season salmon fillets with taco seasoning mix. In 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add fillets to skillet, skin-side down.
  • 3
    Cook 6 to 8 minutes or until skin is browned. Turn fillets; cook 2 to 4 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with fork.
  • 4
    Serve salmon with cilantro-lime sauce.

  • Wild salmon can have a leaner flesh and may take less time to cook than the fattier farm-raised salmon.
  • If you’d like to add a little heat to the cilantro-lime sauce, add 1 teaspoon finely chopped serrano chile.
  • Sautéed corn and cherry tomatoes make a lovely accompaniment to this dish.
