Fish Burritos

Hi guys,

I have being looking for a good fish dish for a long time, and finally came upon this one when I was watching the Food Network (surprise, surprise!). I made this for Derek on our anniversary last week, and he really liked it. Here is what you will need:

Not the best picture in the world...this was before we wrapped it up

4 x 6 oz salmon filets, or any other firm fish
1/2 cup ketchup
1 lime, zested and juiced
3 or 4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp ground cumin
0.5 - 1 tbsp of your favourite hot sauce (careful with this one, it can make or break the dish)
Salt to taste
6 whole wheat tortillas
1/2 red or green or napa cabbage, sliced very thinly or shredded
1 batch of Avocado Salsa or any guacamole and salsa
Few cilantro leaves

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°. Slice the salmon filets in half lengthwise.
  2. Whisk the ketchup, lime, garlic, oregano, cumin, hot sauce and salt together in a bowl then add the fish, tossing it well to coat it with the marinade.
  3. Grill the fish or place it in an oven proof baking dish and roast until it is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Lay a tortilla on your work surface and add a handful of cabbage. Lay a piece of salmon over it and top with some Avocado, Salsa and cilantro.
  5. Wrap it up like a burrrrito! Enjoy!
