These delicious, healthy tacos are gluten and dairy free and will be a hit with your family and friends…and are super quick and easy to prepare!

You can also make them with beef, bean, chicken, tofu or prawn!

Serves 2


1 serving of raw salmon

Pinch of salt and pepper

1-2 teaspoons of Cajun spice

1 dessert spoon of tasteless coconut oil


1 diced mango or apple

1 large ripe avocado, diced

1/4 red onion, sliced thinly – optional

2 small tomatoes, diced

Juice of 1 lime, plus wedges for serving

Freshly chopped coriander for garnish – optional

Instead of the above salsa ingredients you could use any vegetable or salad as a replacement.

2 small tortillas gluten free per person – warmed or grilled


  1. Pat salmon dry, then evenly season all sides of the filets with salt, pepper, and Cajun spice.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, add salmon. Cook until golden, about 5 to 6 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until salmon is opaque.
  3. Allow to rest and cool slightly, then flake into large pieces.
  4. Make avocado salsa in a medium bowl – add mango or apple, avocado, onion, tomatoes, and lime juice. Season with salt and toss to combine.
  5. Assemble tacos – fill flat bread with salmon, avocado salsa, and coriander. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.

For beef, been, chicken, tofu or prawn tacos –

Slice 1 tomato, 2 cups of Cos lettuce, and 2 pieces of shallots. Garnish with guacamole (blend 1 avocado, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, salt and pepper – then add finely chopped tomato and red onion) and add cooked protein of your choice.
