I love cooking in the summer! You can pretty much just buy meat, veggies and fruit and you've got yourself a summer meal! Plus I love that my husband likes to grill so I get to cook with him for a few months each year. This was our first week in a while where I didn't have a million things going on at night so I finally planned out a whole weeks menu and have stuck to it (for the most part- nobody's perfect!). We started off with some salmon tacos. My girls and I love salmon but the boys are not that big of fans. The taco is the only way my husband will eat salmon on account of it has so many others toppings he can drown out the salmon taste. I love to pile it high in salmon and garnish it with the other toppings. So whether you love salmon or loathe it this recipe might by for you!
Salmon Tacos w/ Cilantro Lime Yogurt Sauce
2 lbs. salmon
2 T. chile powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 lime- slice in 1/4 in. slices
1 cup shredded cabbage (I used cole slaw mix-no sauce)
Fresh pico de gallo (or for a delicious sweet twist use a mango peach salsa!)
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
15-20 corn tortillas
1 recipe cilantro lime yogurt sauce (below)
Cilantro Lime Yogurt Sauce:
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 bunch cilantro
2 T. minced garlic
Juice from 1/2 lime
For salmon- place skin side down on a large sheet of heavy duty foil. Combine spices and rub on top of salmon evenly. Place lime slices down the top of the salmon. Wrap foil up and over any thinner parts of the salmon. Place on preheated grill and cook over medium heat for about 45 min. Open foil about 15 minutes before you are ready to remove it from the grill. Salmon is done when pink and flaky.
While salmon is cooking prepare your other toppings including the cilantro yogurt sauce. For the sauce combine all sauce ingredients in a blender until smooth. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
To assemble taco- place salmon on a corn tortilla and top with yogurt sauce and whichever toppings you prefer. Enjoy!
