Slightly Southwestern Salmon Soft Tacos

First off, can you believe it’s September first? I feel like just yesterday it was Christmas. Do the years fly by these days, or is it just me?! My goodness!!

Recently, with hopes of getting Nick to eat salmon, I set out on a mission to create the perfect salmon soft taco (Nick loves tacos). I failed on getting Nick to try the salmon, but I succeeded in coming up with a great recipe!

Salmon Soft Tacos

(serves 6)


For the Salmon

1.5 pounds salmon (wild-caught, preferably)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. chili powder
salt and pepper to taste

*** Don’t have fresh salmon? You could use canned salmon instead.***
*** Following the low FODMAPs diet, like me? Omit the garlic!***Salmon Soft Tacos 1

For the Soft Taco

6 whole wheat soft tortillas
1.5 cups broccoli slaw
1 avocado
2 limes
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup cilantro
Your favorite salsa

** Don’t have broccoli slaw? Add something else for crunch and nutrition, such as cabbage or shredded carrots. **


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray and place the salmon on the sheet, skin-side down.
  3. Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, arrange the other ingredients for your soft taco. Warm your tortillas in a skillet until slightly brown.
  5. Once the salmon is finished you can build your soft taco! I prefer this order; soft taco shell, broccoli slaw, salmon, lime juice, cilantro, avocado, plain Greek yogurt and salsa (you can mix the two together if you’d like).
  6. ENJOY!Salmon Soft Tacos 2

Nick made his soft tacos with shrimp. Oh wait, you can’t see the shrimp? That’s because Nick likes to make salsa tacos, with a bit of shrimp added….. HA!Salmon Soft Tacos 3
