  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: Fusion


  • 1 pound salmon fillet, skin removed, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 11/2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • Mango salsa, optional
  • Chipolte Dipping Sauce


  1. Toss salmon with hoisin sauce. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook salmon until it begins to flake easily with a fork, 3-5 minutes, turning gently to brown all sides.
  2. Serve salmon and lettuce in tortillas; sprinkle with sesame seeds. If desired, top with salsa.


  • Look for thick center pieces of salmon so your cubes will be consistently sized for even cooking.
  • Hoisin sauce is used as both a sauce and condiment in Chinese and Vietnamese cooking. Its flavor is distinctive in two Chinese classics: char siu and moo shu pork.
  • The flavor of hoisin sauce varies quite a bit between brands, so feel free to adjust the amount used.
  • Black sesame seeds have a slightly nuttier flavor than white ones. If you don’t have them, use toasted white sesame seeds instead.
