Fish tacos have become all the rage in recent years and are a specialty of the Pacific coast of Southern California and Mexico. This is a simple recipe: all the components can be made ahead of time and the fish grilled at the last moment. You can also use halibut, sea bass or tilapia in place of the salmon.

"Fantastic! Made these tonight and my hubby raved. Made all the accompaniments and enjoyed them as well. We eat salmon once a week and am always looking for new recipes, I will definitely be making this again. "

Easy, Fresh and Tasty

Everyone loved these. The only things I would do different/change are (i) I made the cabbage slaw 4 hours in advance, and it got a bit wilty, so I would wait to make that right before eating, (ii) I added a fresh squeezed lime to the crema, which gave it some tang, and (iii) the citrus salsa was far too much volume for the tacos, and the proportions could be cut in half. Minor tweaks to what is a great recipe.


Used chili flakes in the citrus salsa as well as mixing canned mandarin oranges in with the regular ones. In place of the cabbage slaw since we are not big fans of cabbage we used organic spring greens from the salad section. Phenomenal.


I pan fries my salmon since my grill is under a foot of snow. Very delicious, I also added thin slices of red apple to the slaw. Made the slaw more amazing.


Yummy and easy to make!

Grilled Salmon Soft Tacos

This recipes sounds AWESOME! But while in Kauai and Maui, I have fallen in love with Ono fish, it is soooo good in fish tacos. I have just recently started liking Salmon, (but it has to be wild Alaskan salmon), so I am anxious to try this recipe. It is all so healthy, and that's what we have been tring to do, is eat healthy!

I have jsut learned to like salmon, so love getting new recipes for using it. It is so healthy.
