Pickled jalapeños, cilantro and avocado perk up convenient canned salmon for a quick tostada topping. Skip store-bought and make your own crispy shells in the oven. Serve with: Brown rice cooked with diced tomatoes and onions or salsa.

"AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! We had to sprinkle a little salt and drizzle more lime juice on the top. Definitely a keeper. "

I used real salmon that I broiled with pepper, salt, and some of the jalapeño relish first-- made it way yummy. Salmon in a can did not excite me...

Sad Disappointment

I looked forward to making this recipe for weeks, and I finally made it tonight. I'm super disappointed. I've never had canned salmon before and it was disgusting so that may be part of the problem, but overall too many strong flavors that don't blend well together. Bummer.

black beans and avocados are always good!
Super easy, very tasty and filling!

This was so simple and easy, and yet so delicious! I loved that everything had it's own taste and no seasonings were needed at all. The flavors just mix together so well! This will definitely become a new favorite around my house.

amazingly delicious

this dish was amazing. when i decided to make it i didn't have a food processor readily available but had to borrow one from mom. I was surprised that this called for canned salmon but in the end it was amazing. the flavors combined so well there was no need for salt and pepper. i was shocked when i tasted it that it was so good. the taste of spicy was so subtle. i'm passing this recipe on to everyone i know!

easy to make, fast to make, surprisingly yummy
Creative Combination

This recipe tasted better than I could have imagined. Who knew salmon would pair so well with tortillas and black beans? Instead of using canned salmon, I bought fresh, grilled it, and shred it. I also added a mixture of grilled onions and peppers for additional nutritional value. These were delicious and tasted way better than the greasy restaurant versions.
