If this recipe looks a bit familiar, you may remember my mango sriracha chicken skewers which is basically the same easy recipe swapping the chicken for salmon and throwing everything into a taco.  I just love how versatile this recipe is and the flavors just scream summer!

HOW TO MAKE MANGO SRIRACHA SALMON TACOS

This recipe truly couldn’t be easier to make!  The most time-consuming part is chopping everything for the salsa, but this can easily be made ahead of time.

  1. Make the marinade!  All you need for this is a blender (or food processor).  Just add the coconut milk, chopped mango, garlic, sriracha, lime juice, honey and olive oil and blend until all combined.  Then mix in the chopped cilantro and that’s it!  I absolutely love this sweet/spicy marinade and it tastes great with chicken too!
  2. Marinate the salmon.  Place the salmon in a shallow dish or bowl and pour the marinade over top, making sure to coat the salmon entirely.  Cover and place the salmon in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes or up to an hour.  I suggest marinating for the full hour as the salmon will be super flavorful!  I also like to reserve a little of the marinade to drizzle over my salmon right before serving.
  3. Make the salsa.  The perfect time to make this is while the salmon is marinating!  Simply chop up your mango, red bell pepper, jalapeño, red onion and cilantro and mix together in a bowl.  Add fresh lime juice + zest then cover and let these flavors marinate together while you’re cooking your salmon.  If you want a spicier salsa, feel free to throw in another jalapeño or even other spicy peppers if you like the heat!
  4. Cook the salmon.  You can either grill the salmon or bake it, this is completely up to you and will taste great either way!  You can either grill the salmon in foil like I did in this recipe or simply grill the salmon 5 to 6 minutes on each side until tender and flaky.  If you decide to bake the salmon, place it skin side down on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for about 8 to 10 minutes.  Then I like to pop the broiler on for about 2  to 3 minutes so that the edges crisp up a bit, so delicious!
  5. Assemble the tacos.  This is the fun part!  Break the salmon up with a fork and divide the salmon among the tortillas.  Drizzle with the reserved marinade and top each tortilla with fresh mango salsa.  I also like to add a little extra cilantro and even avocado slices!

Doesn’t that look delicious??  If you have any extra mango salsa left, I highly suggest making these amazing homemade cinnamon pita chips and eating them with the salsa!  We made them over the 4th of July holiday and they were devoured in minutes.  This salsa would also taste amazing with chicken too!

Instructions

  1. To make the marinade, combine coconut milk, chopped mango, garlic, sriracha, lime juice, honey, olive oil and salt/pepper in a blender and mix until smooth. Mix in cilantro and reserve about a 1/4 cup of marinade to drizzle over the salmon when serving.
