Salmon Tacos. There doesn't seem to be any recipe that won't adapt to having salmon as the protein. If you have been following us for any length of time, you surely know that we love salmon. I mean, what's not to love. Not only is it amazingly tasty, it is a nutritional powerhouse.
We inhaled these tacos way to fast and sat forlornly staring at our empty plates. We have since recreated them time and time again with the same amazing results. We simply love these tacos that much. The salmon has a light spice, and it couples very well with the tang of pickled onions and the creamy hot spice of the sauce. We chose to grill the salmon but this recipe would work well with baked salmon or even salmon cooked in a cast iron skillet. We promise, you will not be disappointed!
