  • 1 pound fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillets
  • 8 ounces medium round red or white potatoes, cubed
  • 1½ teaspoons ground chipotle chile pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 cup purchased green salsa
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 12 (6 inch) or 16 (4 inch) corn tortillas, warmed according to package directions
  • ½ cup light dairy sour cream
  • Lime wedges (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Cook potatoes in a covered small saucepan in enough boiling salted water to cover about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool.
  2. Combine chile pepper, sugar, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt in a small bowl. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish. Sprinkle chile powder mixture evenly over both sides of each fish fillet; rub in with your fingers. Place fish on greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. If desired, cover grill grate with foil before placing fish. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes per ½-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling time. Cool slightly. Break fish into chunks.
  3. Stir together salsa, lime juice, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add potatoes, fish, scallions, and cilantro; toss gently to coat.
  4. Divide fish mixture among tortillas. Top with sour cream; fold tortillas. Serve with lime wedges if desired.
