Salmon Tacos with Avocado Mango Salsa

I finally found a meal that I could seriously live on. It’s easy enough that I would happily make it after a long day at work. And it’s healthy enough that I’d feel really good about eating it. It’s salmon tacos. With avocado mango salsa. And I wrote about them today over on Parade magazine’s website.

The only difficulty with making these every day for the rest of my life is that they would require a trip to the grocery store basically every day. Salmon only stays so good so long, you know.

Then again, it’s always a smart idea to keep your freezer stocked with flash frozen salmon. I highly recommend it. My freezer always has stockpiles of salmon, shrimp, and chicken in it.

I’m pretty sure I’ve already said a million times or two that I would happily eat an avocado a day. But I would. I really, really would. Mango, too.  That’s why this salsa is so fantastic. OK, it might also have something to do with the jalapeño. Jalapeño tends to have that effect.

There are only 8 ingredients in this whole dish. Plus 3 optional ones. And the prep is incredibly simple. Ugh, now I can’t complain when I get home from work that all I want to do is order a pizza. Or Thai food. Or a BLT. These tacos are pretty much easier than picking up the phone and repeating my address to the delivery guy 50 billion times. And way healthier. For my body and my sanity.

    On those nights I get home from work late-ish and don’t feel like preparing much, I heat a veggie burger and crumble it over a salad. I’ll throw in whatever veggies I’ve got, and either cashews or walnuts to give it a little more oomph. But man, these look incredible! Love avocado + mango together. I know what I’ll be making next time!

  8. Three of my favorites: salmon, tacos and avocado! I will definitely have to give this a try 🙂

  9. I’m totally digging the sweet and savory combination this pregnancy so this mango jalapeno salsa sounds perfect! Also, bookmarking for once the baby comes because I’m sure we’ll be craving quick, delicious meals!

  10. Congratulations on getting another recipe published! and what a great one it is 🙂

  11. I was just wondering what to do with the salmon I just picked up! These are perfect 🙂

  12. I could definitely live on these too. I practically do live on salmon and avocados as it is. If you get really fresh salmon it should keep in the refrigerator for about 3 days. I’ve been freezing it too and it turns out great. I just put the frozen filets in the oven and bake them. Perfect!

    This looks so good. Love the salmon and fresh avocado combination. Going to make this tonight.

    yum. yes, please!

  16. I love fish tacos. I am from the Pacific NW, so salmon is always available—-sometimes at a price of course. Right now I am in an avocado phase, because they are actually ripe in the store instead of
    green rocks pretending to be avocados. Perfect!
