Salmon Tacos with Mango Pico de Gallo

Updated: May 2, 2023

Are you ready for the ultimate salmon taco recipe? Look no further because this one will blow your taste buds away. Not only is salmon a great source of nutrients and minerals, but it's also a delicious and versatile protein that's perfect for tacos.

Salmon is one of my favorite proteins not only because it's delicious and easy to cook, but also because it's packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals. Experts recommend incorporating salmon into your diet at least two to three times a week, and at my house, we love to bake or grill it. But this week, I decided to switch things up for Taco Tuesday with some homemade salmon tacos, complete with mango pico de Gallo and tangy cotija cheese.

To start, I cut my salmon fillets into 1-inch cubes and seasoned them with a blend of cumin, paprika, garlic powder, chipotle powder, salt, black pepper, and lime juice. After letting the salmon marinate for at least 30 minutes, I grilled it on the stovetop. If you don't have all of these spices in your pantry, don't worry – taco seasoning or cajun seasoning are great alternatives that won't break the bank.

Now, for the star of the show – the mango pico de Gallo. I simply diced up fresh mangos (avoid the canned stuff if possible), Roma tomatoes (cherry tomatoes work too), onions, and cilantro, and mixed them together in a bowl. For a milder flavor, remove the seeds from your jalapeños – it's the seeds that pack the heat! And if you're not a fan of mango, feel free to switch it up with pineapple or strawberries.

Finally, for the finishing touches, I added crumbled cotija cheese, creamy Mexican sour cream, and jalapeño slices to my tacos. Of course, you can customize the toppings to your liking – shredded lettuce, avocado, or hot sauce would all be great options. So next time you're looking to spice up your Taco Tuesday, give these salmon tacos a try – your taste buds will thank you.
