Carolyn Pollack's Grilled Salmon Burritos With Goat Cheese

READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 4 burritos




  • To prepare the salsa, gently toss together all the ingredients in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed. This salsa may be prepared up to 1 hour before serving.
  • To prepare the burrito, combine the thyme, basil, parsley, and goat cheese in a small mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, fold and stir together until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble the burrito.
  • To prepare the salmon, light a charcoal or gas grill. Check the salmon fillets for pinbones by running your fingertips along the flesh side of the fillet. Remove any bones with tweezers. In a small bowl stir together the chile powder and olive oil. Rub each fillet on all sides with the oil mixture.
  • Grill the salmon, turning once, 2 to 3 minutes on each side, depending upon the thickness of the fillets, and your preferred degree of doneness.
  • While the fillets are cooking, heat the beans in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
  • Warm the tortillas by placing them, one at a time, in a dry cast-iron skillet over high heat. Turning them once, heat for about 15 seconds on each side. Do not heat them too long or they will lose their pliability. Keep the tortillas warm by wrapping them in a dry cloth.
  • To assemble each burrito, place a tortilla on a warmed serving plate. Using a rubber spatula, spread 2 tablespoons of the seasoned goat cheese onto the tortilla. Place 1/4 cup of the beans in the center of each tortilla and top with a salmon fillet. Roll up the tortilla and place on a serving plate, fold side down. Top each burrito with the salsa, dividing it evenly among the servings. Serve Immediately.
