There are so many ways to form a taco into the perfect plate-to-mouth transportation device. But, with salmon, salsa, avocados, grilled veggies, and a little goat cheese, you will discover a new staple to your Taco Tuesday nights. The flavors all blend together so well that you will barely have time to grab a plate before you dig in.
It’s important to take tacos very seriously. They are their own food group after all...or at least they should be. With the following health-conscious ingredients, you will be able to salivate and savor these delicious, nutritious morsels.
1 fillet of boneless, skinless salmon (wild, not farmed)
1 package of tortillas
Thrive Market taco seasoning
½ red onion
1 bell pepper
1 head of broccoli
1 handful of mushrooms
¼ raw red onion
2 green onions
A crumbling of goat cheese
Salsa of your choice
Putting it Together
- First, turn on the barbecue to high heat.
- Begin chopping the vegetables, placing them into a grill-safe bowl or wok. Drizzle with a little avocado oil and move onto the grill. Throughout the cooking time, periodically toss them and make sure they are evenly crisping.
- Tear off a large piece of foil and place the salmon on top. Pour a little avocado oil on top and generously rub the taco seasoning onto both sides of the fish. Fold the foil over the salmon so that it seals it in nice and tight.
- Once the veggies look as though they are halfway cooked, place the foil-encased salmon on to the grill, close the lid and set your timer for 7 minutes.
- While you wait, chop up the avocado, tomatoes, and raw onion for the taco garnish.
- Once the 7 minutes have passed, flip the fish and set your timer for another 7 minutes.
- Take the salmon and veggies off after the timer beeps. Carefully open up the foil to expose the perfectly blackened fish.
- Right after you take the salmon off of the grill, throw the tortillas on and flip a few times until they soften and warm up.
- With the taco shells, meat, and garnish ready to serve, it’s time to eat! Lay some of the salmon into the shell, top with the veggies and the garnish, and drizzle a little salsa or Sriracha over the masterpiece. It’s taco time.
