Spiced Salmon Tacos with Chipotle Lime Crema

These salmon tacos are a tasty way to get more Omega-3 in your diet. The salmon has delicate taste which really allows the spices and herbs to shine. Up the healthy fats by topping with diced avocado or guacamole.

It’s Taco Tuesday guys! But let’s be honest I’ll eat Tacos any, if not everyday! As I previously mentioned on my last recipe (Salsa Fresca Avocado Toast), I absolutely love Mexican food so Tacos are a no-brainer for me. These Spiced Salmon Tacos I’ve been eating on and off for the last year or so. They are so quick and easy to make but also amazingly delicious to eat.

Salmon is a great fish to include in your diet. It’s a great source of Omega-3 healthy fats, vitamins A, D, E and K. Not only that but salmon has such a unique flavour, not too fishy but mild and distinctive. I love the taste of salmon combined with punchy spices and the smokey, zesty chipotle lime crema. Anyway enough said, I implore you to give this a try recipe. It’s fun, easy, healthy and most importantly delicious.
