  1. To make salsa, combine watermelon, jalapeno, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, and chili powder in a non-reactive bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper; cover tightly, and refrigerate until needed.

  2. To make the fish, pat fish until dry with paper towels. Combine lime juice and zest, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Spread mixture onto flesh side of fish, then set aside. Heat a cast iron skillet or frying pan until hot, then add vegetable oil. When oil is very hot but not yet smoking, add fish pieces skin-side down and sear for about 4 minutes or until skin is crisp and flesh is partially opaque, then flip and finish cooking. Sear fish in batches until complete.

  3. To assemble tacos, place a piece of seared salmon in a hot flour tortilla and top with watermelon salsa; enjoy fresh.
