SALMON TACOS & MANGO SALSA RECIPE

Don’t be intimidated by fish, it’s actually extremely easy to cook.  With a little bit of fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and salt, you will have perfect buttery, flaky fish every time.  For these tacos, I chose salmon, but any type of fish will do.  And the mango salsa is just as easy, a few chopped ingredients and the natural flavors do all the work for you.  Sweet mangos chill together with red onion, crunchy red pepper, and tangy lime juice creating a mysterious harmony, taming the heat of the chili pepper cream sauce.  Wouldn’t these would be great as an appetizer or mixing up the weekend barbecue?

KEEP READING FOR FULL RECIPE…

    Never thought of using salmon in a taco – I always go for Mahi Mahi – but this is a great alternative. Definitely on my list of tacos to try (which happens to be never ending, and I’m OK with that).
