Salmon BLT Taco

Quick, easy, and dang tasty dinner.

One thing I’ve learned about food and nutrition lately is that good oils and good fats ARE necessary.  Our bodies need them.  What are healthful oils?  Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, fish oils, and some nut oils like Macadamia from Australia.  What are healthful fats?  Organic beef, Salmon, most fresh fish, and raw cows milk.  The most important Vitamins and Minerals that you need are “fat soluble” in animal protein.

The other thing I’ve learned is that I still love and crave Tin Star tacos. They have a special Taco that’s special order. It’s the Salmon BLT, with salmon, chipotle mayo, bacon, pico de gallo, and lettuce.

Here’s my healthier interpretation:

Jon’s Salmon BLT Tacos

Grilled salmon, with a pinch of sea salt, pepper, paprika rubbed on one side. Ad some fresh lemon juice while it’s grilling.

Organic uncured bacon (half slice per taco – extra crispy)

Half organic mayo and half Nathan’s mustard mixed with a tiny pinch of powdered chipotle pepper.

Fresh Pico De Gallo from the store or homemade with onion, jalapeno, tomato, and cilantro.

Fresh crispy lettuce or cabbage. (I didn’t have any tonight for mine)

Corn tortillas lightly skillet fried in some olive oil

Get the salmon and bacon cooked ahead of time and keep warm. When it’s meal time, fry up the tortillas and put a spoonful of spicy mayo down the middle followed by bacon, then salmon, then pico and lettuce. Eat them right away so they are warm and fresh.

This is what good, healthy food is all about.
