  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and brushing the parchment with a teaspoon or so of olive oil.
  • Combine the taco seasoning and olive oil in a small bowl, mixing until it becomes a paste. Place the salmon filet on the prepared baking sheet and rub the salmon filet with the seasoning/oil mixture until it’s fully coated.
  • Bake the salmon at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 22-25 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork in the middle but is still moist and tender.
  • For the salad, add the corn and black beans to a large bowl along with the chopped tomatoes, the chunks of avocado, chopped red onion, and minced garlic. Drizzle the lime juice overtop and toss everything together very well. Add the chopped cilantro and toss lightly just to combine.
  • Once the salad is prepared, shred the salmon lightly with a fork and serve it in taco shells topped with the salad, some shredded cheese and more cilantro.
