  3. For the jalapeño puree, process the coriander, jalapeños and garlic in a small food processor until finely chopped. Add the avocado and lime juice. Process until well combined. Season with salt.
  4. Place a slice of salmon on each tortilla strip and top with a dollop of coriander and jalapeño puree. Sprinkle with micro coriander and serve with lime wedges.
