Salmon Tacos

I have many taco recipes on the blog and fish tacos are one of my favorite things. I always say fish tacos are the way to my heart. I have been play with different salmon recipes and finally have a salmon taco recipe that I love. I made these salmon tacos and became obsessed with them. I can’t wait for you to try them. I know you will love them too.

I make the seasoning and let it sit on the salmon for about an hour in the fridge. This really helped the seasoning to really get inside the salmon. Add a little lime juice to the salmon and cooked the salmon on the grill in tin foil or in the oven wrapped in tin foil on a baking sheet. While the salmon is cooking I get all my toppings ready. Everyone in my family loves different things on their tacos, so we have different toppings like salsa, guacamole sauce, chipotle lime sauce, mango salsa, cheese and sour cream to name a few.


This recipe is pretty easy to make. I have a friend that heats her tortilla shells up on her gas stove and got me hooked on that. So that is how I heat up my shells.
