Zucchini tortillas

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Rinse the zucchini but don't peel. Shred and squeeze out excess liquid.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the zucchini with the shredded cheese, eggs, almond flour, psyllium husk, and salt. Combine to create a smooth batter.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Using a spatula remove the batter and place it onto the baking tray in portions. Shape one ball per portion, flatten the balls with your hand and make them as thin (and round) as possible.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven 20-25 minutes or until light brown. Set aside.
  5. Taco salmon

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

  11. 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.
  12. Serving

  13. 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.

Tips

The tomato paste is primarily included for color and can be excluded if you’re using chipotle paste instead of powder.

Feel free to substitute any other flaky fish in place of the salmon, such as halibut, cod, rockfish, or snapper.
