Taco Tuesday will never be the same! We are loving this Salmon Street Tacos recipe from Jessica of A Happy Food Dance. With simply seasoned salmon and fresh produce, you can get the flavor of traditional street tacos without feeling the guilt! These tacos are perfect for a dinner for two, or make a big batch for your next dinner party. With the Southern California flavors, your friends and family will be begging you for the recipe. Just in case you needed one more reason to make them, they take almost no time! Here’s what Jessica has to say:
Being a Southern Californian, consuming tacos happens pretty regularly and street tacos might be my absolute favorite. They are usually a little smaller and topped with simple ingredients. This spin on street tacos – salmon street tacos – has all the elements of a street taco but with a bit of a twist, a healthy twist. Stuffed with grilled salmon, topped with simple ingredients, and all wrapped in a corn tortilla, these tacos really can’t get any better. The salmon is seasoned with just salt and pepper and the toppings are just fresh produce. Finish it with a squeeze of lime and a dollop of sour cream, and you have the most satisfying meal without breaking your calorie bank.
These can easily be done on a grill outside, but I used a grill plate on top of my stove, which is perfect for making tacos this time of year. And while being in Southern California means lots of tacos, it also means great produce year round. If you can’t find all the great toppings I used, simply substitute what’s available in your area. Really, with these tacos, simple is best.
