These salmon tacos are ideal for entertaining. I’m not sure why I hadn’t thought of making salmon tacos sooner considering my dad always shares his fresh wild-caught Alaskan salmon. Salmon tacos are my favorite way to eat salmon these days, by far.

They take hardly any time to make, which is always important to me. I even made these last week right after getting home and getting ready to leave for our Truckee trip. They take about 20-25 minutes from start to finish. Not bad for some gourmet looking and tasting tacos!

While the salmon is baking in the oven, work on your jalapeño cilantro slaw. It doesn’t take long for those zesty flavors to stick to the cabbage. I also love the flavor of goat cheese on these tacos. We’ve tried feta and it just doesn’t work the same. Feel free to add queso fresco.
