Grilled Salmon Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa

Who doesn’t love tacos? I don’t cook that often anymore but given the chance, quick and easy meals are my go-to. And tacos? Are the easiest to whip up when you’re in a hurry.

Grilling salmon is easy, but if you’re short on time, feel free to pan-sear with butter. And the chunky mango avocado salsa adds a sweet and creamy texture to the delicious salmon! Try to purchase wild salmon versus farmed – it’s more sustainable, healthier and more flavorful.

This recipe is inspired by the sweet mangos from my friends at the National Mango Board! The recipe is featured in the National Mango Board’s Fresh Flavorful Festive cookbook, enter below to win one.
