Combine coffee and spices in a small bowl. Season salmon with salt and freshly ground pepper and sprinkle with spice mixture. In a large sauté pan, heat a thin film of oil over medium high heat. Sauté salmon in batches to desired doneness. Remove from pan to plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

Combine cabbages and peppers in a bowl and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Toss with some of the creamy avocado dressing to moisten and adjust seasoning.

Serve warm corn tortillas with salmon, slaw and extra avocado dressing on the side.
