Easy Salmon Tacos With Slaw


What Kind of Salmon Should I Use?

I recommend using fresh, wild salmon because it tastes best and is more sustainable. Try to look for fillets that smell fresh and are bright red or orange in color!

Make the Slaw

In a medium bowl, mix together the avocado, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt. Then, add the cabbage.

Season the Salmon

In another bowl, combine the cubed salmon with the spices and a little bit of olive oil. Make sure that everything is evenly coated!

Bake the Salmon

Next, on a lined baking sheet, spread the salmon into a single layer and bake for 8 minutes.

Broil the Salmon

For the last minute of baking time, switch the oven to broiler so that the salmon can brown a little!

Assemble the Tacos

Add your salmon and creamy slaw to some corn tortillas, then top them with pickled onions and cotija cheese.

Serve and Enjoy!

Serve your salmon tacos with your favorite salsa and some creamy guacamole. Feel free to add more toppings, too, if you like!
