Sprinkle the top of the trout with taco seasoning. Leave the skin on if the skin the trout has skin. It will come off easily after the trout is cooked.
Air fryer instructions: Preheat the air fryer to 400F. Place the seasoned trout skin side down in the air fryer tray. If you want, brush or spray with oil, but it's not necessary. Air fry the trout for 8-10 minutes, or until fully cooked.
Pan-frying instructions: Preheat a large nonstick pan. Add ½ tablespoon olive oil, then add the trout skin side down. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until the trout is fully cooked and flakes easily with a fork.
Use a fork to roughly "chop" the trout into long pieces about 1 inch wide. The trout should come right off the skin easily. Y
Make the salsa and assemble the tacos:
Combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Start with ⅛ teaspoon salt and ½ tablespoon lime juice, mix together, then add more if needed.
Toast or microwave the tortillas until just warmed. Keep the tortillas covered under a clean towel or by covering with a lid or container.
Assemble the tacos: Add 2-3 trout pieces to each tortilla, enough to cover the length of the taco. Top with a few tablespoons of the mango salsa and a few pieces of finely shredded cabbage. Garnish with cilantro leaves, add a dollop of sour cream, or squeeze some lime juice on top. Eat immediately, then assemble your next trout taco to enjoy!
