Salmon Taco Salad

   Lime Crema
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk, for thinning
1 lime, juiced
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
several dashes Tapatio hot sauce
salt to taste
   Mango Avocado Salsa
1 large ripe mango, cubed
1 large ripe avocado, cubed
1/4 cup red onion, diced
2 tablespoons jalapeno, minced
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 lime, juiced
1 pound wild sockeye salmon, skin and pin bones removed, cut into four fillets
2 tablespoons oil for the pan
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon sugar
4 cups mixed greens (i used leaf lettuce and spinach)
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups crumbled corn chips

   Lime Crema
In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, milk, lime juice, garlic powder and Tapatio until smooth and combined. More milk can be added as needed to thin the mixture so that it is a pourable consistency. Season generously with salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
   Mango Avocado Salsa
To a medium bowl, add the mango, avocado, red onion, jalapeño and cilantro. Squeeze lime juice over top, season with salt and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet to medium high heat. Add the avocado oil to the pan. Pat each fillet dry and season each with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, stir together the chili powder, cumin and sugar. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over each fillet to coat, patting the seasoning down so that it adheres to the fish. Sear the salmon fillets in the hot pan, about 2-3 minutes per side for medium (cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your fillets), being careful not to overcook.
Lay out four salad plates or shallow bowls. Divide the greens evenly into each of the bowls. Top the greens with the shredded cabbage, followed by black beans.Top the beans with the salmon fillets, followed by the mango avocado salsa. Drizzle everything with lime crema and sprinkle with crumbled corn chips. Serve the salad with more corn chips, lime wedges, and Tapatio hot sauce on the side.
