• Salmon Tacos

Roasted Salmon Tacos

I made this recipe for a late lunch/early dinner on a gray Sunday afternoon. This recipe brightened up my afternoon, it was light but very flavorful.

I joined a tasting table group on facebook that requires you to cook a recipe from a specific cookbook once a week. The book that was chosen was Ina Garten’s cookbook called Cooking for Jeffrey

Pro Tip: To reduce the amount of sodium in the recipe, I would use 1/2 of the recommended amount of salt that the recipe calls for. 

Roasted Salmon Tacos

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Yields: 6


  • 3/4 lbs green cabbage, cored and finely shredded
  • 1/2 cucumber, unpeeled, halved lengthwise and very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup good white wine vinegar
  • 3 tsp minced fresh dill
  • Olive oil for greasing the pan
  • 1 3/4 lbs salmon fillets
  • 2 tsp Chipotle Chile powder
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp lime juice, divided
  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 4 ripe Hass avocados, seeded and peeled
  • 3/4 tsp Sriracha


  1. 1 hr before you plan to serve the tacos, toss the cabbage, cucumber, vinegar, dill, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate so that the cabbage can marinate.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Mix the Chile powder, lime zest and 1 1/2 tsp salt in a small bowl. Brush the salmon with 1 tbsp of lime juice and sprinkle with Chipotle seasoning mixture.
  4. Spray or brush baking dish with olive oil. Place salmon on baking dish.
  5. Roast for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Warm up the tortillas
  7. Roughly mash the avocados with remaining 2 tbsp of lime juice, the Sriracha, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
  8. Place a dollop of the avocado mixture on one side of each tortilla, then some large chunks of salmon, and then some the slaw.
