  • 1 lb. salmon, deboned, skin on
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, season the salmon
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, season the salmon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil , for searing the salmon
  • 1 cup kimchi, Nasoya brand linked above
  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce, Sweet Baby Ray’s, traditional flavor
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • ½ red onion, sliced thin, 2-3 slices per taco
  • ¼ cup scallions, white and green parts, as garnish
  • 4 flour tortillas, warmed in a pan


  • 11-inch skillet


Prepare the salmon:

  • Remove the salmon from the package. Make sure it is deboned.
  • Pat the salmon dry using paper towel.
  • Season the filet with salt and pepper. You can leave the skin on or remove it. Whatever you prefer. I left it on while cooking, then removed it once the salmon was done.
  • Heat an 11-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the pan is hot, you’ll drizzle the salmon with olive oil right before you add it to the pan. Meat side down.
  • Sear for 5-6 minutes before turning. If the salmon is getting too dark, reduce the heat. Once you flip the salmon, begin to brush on the BBQ sauce.
  • Sear for another 5-6 minutes skin side down. Make sure you coat both sides with the BBQ sauce.
  • Once the salmon is cooked, remove it from the heat and set it aside.

Assemble the tacos:

  • Heat a flour tortilla on the stovetop.
  • Add sliced avocado and sliced red onion.
  • Break off a piece of the BBQ salmon and place it on the tortilla. About 4 ounces per taco
  • Add the kimchi and finish the taco with scallions and lime wedges.
