Salmon Tostadas and Grilled Tomato Salsa
2 lbs. of cooked, steamed or grilled salmon
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbs. chopped cilantro
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 small red onion, finely chopped
Salt to taste
2 avocados, peeled, seeded, and cut into slices
2 limes cut into wedges
18 tostadas (corn tortillas that have been heated in canola oil on deep fry until golden brown)
Put salmon, lemon juice cilantro, tomatoes, onions, and salt to taste into large bowl and stir to combine. Spoon evenly onto tostadas, garnish each with slice of avocado, and serve with lime wedges on the side. Add Tapatio sauce for spiciness.
For Grilled Tomato Salsa:
Preheat grill to medium. Grill 4 arbol chiles, 3 large tomatoes, 2 serrano chiles, and 1 jalapeno chile, turning frequently, until well charred (4 min. for the arbol chiles. 8 min. for the serranos, tomatoes, and jalapenos). Transfer everything to a plate. Core the tomatoes, and stem the chiles. Transfer all ingredients to a blender along with 4 garlic cloves, and a pinch of cilantro. Pulse 4 times until still chunky. Transfer salsa to a bowl and season with salt to taste. Serve with Salmon Tostadas or any of your favorite veggies, meat, or tortilla chips. Recipe contribued by Rolando Herrera’s wife, Lorena.
