1/2 cup (125 mL) plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped red onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp (1 mL) lime zest
2 Tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
1/2 tsp (2 mL) honey
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper, divided
cayenne pepper, to taste (1 pinch)
(about 5 oz/150 g each) skin-on salmon fillets
2 Tbsp (30 mL) Tex-Mex seasoning
1/2 cup (125 mL) crushed tortilla chips
1/4 cup (60 mL) thinly sliced green onions


Preheat grill to medium-high. In bowl, stir together yogurt, cilantro, red onion, garlic, lime zest, lime juice, honey, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper, and cayenne.

Meanwhile, season salmon with Tex-Mex seasoning, and remaining salt and pepper. Grill, turning once, for 5 to 6 minutes or until fish is tender and begins to flake when tested.

Place salmon on serving platter; dollop yogurt sauce over top. Sprinkle with tortilla chips and green onions.


Rub a cut potato over the hot grill to prevent fish from sticking!
