Salmon Fajitas

Nothing says satisfying comfort meal like fajitas, that Tex-Mex dish of seared meat and vegetables served family style, so everyone can scoop up exactly what they want. Here, salmon stands in for the usual chicken, beef, or shrimp. You start by getting the oven hot, then slathering a single chunk of salmon fillet with a mixture of olive oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, chile flakes, and salt.
