Instructions

Zucchini tortillas

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the shredded zucchini into a tea towel or your hands, and squeeze out any excess liquid. Add the zucchini to a large bowl, and mix together with the shredded cheese, eggs, almond flour, psyllium husk, and salt until it becomes a smooth batter.
  3. Scoop equal portions of the batter onto the baking sheet, leaving space in between. Flatten each portion with moist hands, forming thin and round tortillas, approximately 10″ (25 cm) in diameter.
  4. Bake on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

Taco salmon

  1. Set the oven to 365°F (180°C)
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the olive oil with the taco seasoning.
  3. Place salmon in a baking dish and brush it with the taco mix. Top with the chopped cilantro and sliced red onion.
  4. Bake on the middle rack for about 20 minutes, or until the salmon is just cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Chipotle mayo

  6. Mix the ingredients for the mayo in a small bowl. Let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer to allow the flavors to develop.
  7. Serving

  8. Serve the salmon with the tortilla bread and drizzle with chipotle mayo. Top it with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice for extra freshness and color.
