Grilled Salmon Tacos Recipe

I saw this AMAZING looking recipe on the etsy blog today 
(many of you may have seen it too)...
It's grilled Salmon tacos with fire roasted corn salsa.
Since I have corn, onions, jalapeno, and cherry tomatoes in my garden, this will be a fun one to try!

Grilled Salmon Tacos with Fire Roasted Corn Salsa
For the salmon:
1 pound wild Alaskan salmon fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper
Corn salsa
For the salsa:
2 ears corn, shucked and lightly coated in olive oil
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 small jalapeño, diced
1/4 cup minced cilantro
1 small red onion, diced
salt to taste
Corn tortillas
Thinly sliced cabbage
Crumbled feta or cotija cheese

Yummy, healthy, and summery, I can't wait!

I've never spent much time browsing etsy blogs, but I might have to start...

Also, I sponsored the CSI project last week and the winner, Jen from Lipstick and Laundry, posted about my sign today!  Thanks Jen!

  1. Nope, sorry, cabbage isn't optional on fish tacos. It's mandatory. You can skip the cheese, though. Fish tacos are a California staple, see, so I'm gonna help you even though I'm vegan now and no longer eat them. :)

    For the genuine, Baja-styled, original fish taco, you don't need anything fancy. You need fish, cabbage, salsa if you like it, but no jarred salsa, it's got to be freshly made salsa fresca.

    You MUST serve them with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. MUST. Doesn't matter what kind of fish is in it, it's got to have lime. Serve it on the side, though, just in case you come across someone who is sucky and doesn't like the lime juice.

    You wrap the tacos in TWO corn tortillas, not one. The juicy quality of the lime and everything makes a single tortilla too thin. Don't cook the corn tortillas Sorry to mention that, but the recipe doesn't state, but it's always two uncooked tortillas for wrapping.

    Lots of times in CA the fish is actually deep fried, almost like a "fish and chips" style, but any cooked fish will do be it salmon like in your recipe, or halibut, mahi mahi, or whatever.

    Serve sour cream as an optional condiment, but it's not typically served with this type of taco in authentic fish taco joints. Mostly, the flavor comes from lime juice and salsa so as not to compete with the flavor of the fish.
