Salmon Tacos with Jalapeño Sauce & Purple Slaw

Weekends are for tacos n frozen margaritas

Made these salmon tacos with jalapeño sauce & purple slaw for a girls night last weekend, and let me tell you.. they were killer! I pretty much could go for a taco any time of the day, any day of the year, but I am especially in the mood for taco in the summer time when the sun is out really late.

Salmon Tacos with Jalapeño Sauce & Purple Slaw

Serves: 8-10 tacos


  • Slaw:
  • ½ small red cabbage- chopped thin
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • ¾ very thinly chopped red onion
  • 1½ tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ lb wild salmon
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
    Jalapeño sauce:
  • 1 jalapeño (seeds and ribs removed)
  • 1 cup packed cilantro leafs
  • ¼ cup green onion
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ tsp salt
    Other taco necessities
  • 1 cup sprouts
  • 2 tbsplack sesame seeds
  • 8-10 Corn tortillas
  1. First make the slaw by tossing all of the ingredients together, then let it sit for an hour or more.
  2. Next, roast the salmon. Pre-heat the oven to 350 & season the salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper. Stick it in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Once it's done, let it cool for a few minutes, then break it up into bite-size pieces.
  3. Make the jalapeño sauce by simply blending everything together. Set aside.
  4. Assemble the tacos by adding a tbsp or two of jalapeño sauce to each corn tortilla, then layer a few bite-sized pieces of salmon, a scoop of slaw, some sprouts and sesame seeds! Enjoy!
