  • 1 lb salmon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup edamame
  • 1/4 cup white corn
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomatoes in oil (drained)
  • 2 fresh limes, juiced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 8 corn tortillas, soft tacos, or hard-shell corn tortillas
  • 1 packages (8.2 oz) Old El Paso™ Fiesta Rice heat & serve
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  • 1
    Spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high. As soon as it's hot, add the salmon to the skillet. Salt and pepper it and cook for 4-5 minutes before flipping and cooking on the other side. Cook just until the fish is cooked through, and becomes flaky.
  • 2
    Add the edamame and corn to the skillet, then turn the skillet off.
  • 3
    In a blender, add the sour cream, chipotle pepper, sundried tomatoes, and lime juice. Blend until pureed.
  • 4
    Heat the Old El Paso™ Fiesta Rice in the microwave, according to package directions.
  • 5
    Assemble tacos by layering rice and fish mixture in taco shells. Top with spicy cream sauce and chopped cilantro.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    If you can’t find fresh edamame at the grocery store, you can use frozen. Just be sure to thaw before adding them to these salmon tacos.
  • tip 2
    White corn can be substituted for yellow corn in a pinch.
  • tip 3
    While we’re calling these “salmon tacos,” any fatty fish would taste delicious in this dish. Swap out the salmon for tuna or mackerel, if desired.
