Jamie Oliver's crispy salmon tacos with mango and avocado

12 Comments

In his new cookbook, “7 Ways,” Jamie Oliver highlights 18 ingredients — from chicken to shrimp and eggs to potatoes — and offers seven new ways to construct dishes around them with no more than eight ingredients. Here is one of the offerings:

CRISPY SALMON TACOS

Serves: 2

Start to finish: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

— 155 grams ripe mixed-color cherry tomatoes

— 1 small ripe mango

— 1/2 small ripe avocado

— 2 scallions

— 2 x 125 grams salmon fillets, skin-on, scaled, pin-boned

— 2 heaping teaspoons of Cajun seasoning

— 4 small tortillas

— 2 limes

Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Pit, peel and roughly chop the mango. Scoop out the avocado and finely slice. Trim and finely slice the scallions. Carefully cut the skin off the salmon and place it in a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat to crisp up both sides. Pat the Cajun seasoning all over the salmon fillets, then fry for 5 minutes, turning to get them golden on each of their sides. Once the skin is crispy, move it to sit on top of the salmon.

Meanwhile, use tongs to toast the tortillas directly over the flames of your gas stove for 15 seconds or use a hot pan. Sprinkle the mango, avocado and scallions over the tortillas, then flake in the salmon and crack up and add the crispy skin. Toss the tomatoes and the juice of 1 lime in the residual heat of the pan for 30 seconds, then spoon over the tortillas. Serve with lime wedges, for squeezing over.

Jamie's recipes are great, and I like the bloke, but honestly, have you ever completed one of his recipes, start to finish, in the time he says it takes?

@BigYen. I do the weekend cooking and can honestly answer.....no. I watch his videos and Gordon Ramsey’s and can’t keep up probably the wine

I’m actually doing cannelloni tonight and integrating some of his stuff into mama’s recipe

These British Chef are considered Very Top and Famous in the world but all they did was to check and taste the local street foods all around the world and make it their style adding some bits here and there, which they could never do that in their own country, a country of just fish and chips, and mashed potatoes, that's it.

Fired all his restaurant staff during the lockdown. What they got was an email.

his restaurants in the United Kingdom have officially gone into administration, causing what means the loss of upwards of 1,000 jobs and all but three of his restaurants to close,

Not entirely, you have more Japanese chefs that are some of the top contenders

but having said that Oliver is a good chef, very organic in his approach makes amazing colorful dishes and definitely changed the way British food is cooked and presented by giving it a more healthier makeover.

Jamie Oliver is a Cook, a Chef and a business man?

Well those 1000 plus employees could and would contend otherwise, and righty so.

I never thought Jamie really understood food. Food in the UK was improving all over the place before he came around with his Naked Chef program. He was barely out of culinary school, with little real experience in kitchens. His cooking experience is mostly on TV. He's a good self promoter, but not really a great chef.

Commanteer. . Fully agree. All talk.

in strong contrast with Chef Gordon Ramsay, who is a superb cook and businessman.

Fish tacos are as old as Baja California. Usually they use cod but any good fish will do. All this fellow did was try a different kind of fish. No big innovation here.

What a load of codswallop. You’re ‘aving a giraffe mate. Pull the other one, its got bells on.
