Simple Salmon Tacos

Salmon Tacos

I love all types of Mexican food, but tacos are my first choice on any Mexican menu. Tacos are so versatile you can filled them with anything, seafood, chicken, vegetables, pork, beef, beans or eggs. I am not an expert preparing the delicious food of this country, but I surely enjoy cooking it.

These salmon tacos are simple and really good! They make the perfect lunch. Serve with tomatillo sauce or red salsa.

  • Simple Salmon Tacos


For the salmon:
Preheat the oven to 400°F.

In a large baking dish place the salmon fillets. Season with cumin, onion powder, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.

Heat the tortillas on a nonstick skillet, then wrap them in aluminum foil to keep them warm.
To assemble: spread one tortilla with sour cream, then top with cabbage, salmon, avocado and fresh cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle lime juice on top. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas or just let every person assemble their own tacos.

    I used your recipe for making salmon for relatives (without the tacos) and everyone raved about it! Never made salmon before either. Thank you!
