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. (I am all about easy clean up) While the salmon was cooking I started getting the avocado sauce ready. I will say you definitely need a ripe avocado, it needs to be soft.

This recipe is pretty easy to make. I have a friend that heats her tortilla shells up on her gas stove. Ever since we moved into this house and we have a gas stove. I have been heating my shells on the stove too. I love this was.
