Salmon tacos

The most easiest and tastiest salmon tacos I have ever made, the juicy spiced salmons, topped with simple salsa, lettuce and super simple avocado and mayo sauce to go with it, so refreshing! Serve with corn tortillas, lightly grilled until the cheese melts.. oh so good! 

Salmon Tacos

It’s a very quick recipe to make, first get the salmon cooking, while the salmon is cooking make the dip and salsa ready. Then pop into the oven for couple of minutes just until the cheese melts and it’s ready.  

Salmon Tacos

I have used very basic spices to pan fry the salmon, you can even oven bake it, but I liked pan frying mine as it makes it more moist and juicy.

Also made a super quick salsa, nothing fancy but just tomatoes, cucumber and red onion chopped and mixed together, seasoned with salt and pepper and some fresh coriander.

Everything comes together so good and when you pop the corn tortillas into the oven for a couple of minutes just intolerant the cheese melts, they become so nice and crispy and oh so tasty!

In the same pan add your peppers, red onions and continue frying until soft and done for about 3 to 4 minutes.

    5. For the salsa - chop and mix the cucumber, tomato, onions and coriander into a bowl. 
    6. To assemble, place the tortilla on the lined baking sheet, add the peppers mixture, add the salmon pieces, drizzle grated cheese on top of the salmon.  Carefully fold the tortillas into half and gently press it down, repeat the same steps for the rest. Bake in the oven until the cheese starts to melt, for about 5 minutes. Add the salsa, avocado dip, lettuce and freshly chopped coriander on top and serve immediately. Enjoy!
