Salmon Tacos with Slaw & Mango Salsa

Salmon Tacos with slaw & mango salsa. Recipe on the Tasty Fork

The other day I noticed The Tasty Fork Fan page on Facebook hit over 1300 likes! I couldn’t believe it!!! Facebook is a great way  to interact with my readers and I’m so happy there are 1300 people who care what I have to say. LOL.

Things are starting to warm up where I live. How about you?? I’ve been able to grill out a few times and take the dog for long walks. You want to know where else things were getting hot? In my fridge. :( We got a new refrigerator in January because our last one died. So imagine my surprise when I open the fridge on Sunday morning to get out all of the food I made for a wedding shower only to find my fridge smelled like death. There was NO way I could serve the things I made. I was flustered and pretty annoyed especially since the shower started in just a few hours.

The repair man couldn’t come out to fix it until Monday. He said to wait 24 hours before loading it up with food again just to make sure it would be cold enough. I was pissed we had to throw away so much food and condiment essentials. Here is a tip I learned – If you’re trying to get rid of a rancid odor in your fridge, DO NOT spray Febreeze. It totally doesn’t work the same like it does in an open air space. Ooops. I now have 2 baking soda boxes just hanging out in the fridge. I guess that’s why opening a box of baking soda is classic method of removing odors because it works.

Since my fridge is fiiiinally cold enough to store food, I’m sharing with you Salmon Tacos. Fish tacos totally make me think of summer! I feel like it’s a bit “lighter” than the everyday meat tacos we eat and I’ve changed it up a bit by adding two fun garnishes; Greek Yogurt Slaw and Mango Avocado Salsa. Two 6 ounce salmon fillets were enough for 6 loaded tacos. The Mango Avocado Salsa recipe has been doubled so I could serve some on the side with corn tortilla chips. It rounds out to be a restaurant quality meal!

    Found you from the SITSSharefest link up! The reason I clicked on your link it because I was JUST talking to my husband about how I want Salmon this week but I want a way to spice it up a bit…and viola your AMAZING dish appeared. Can’t wait to try this out!


  6. Heather @ Sugar Dish Me says

    ooooh the grilled corn tortillas are so pretty!
    I’m so sorry about your fridge! Breaking appliances are THE WORST.
    What did you do about the wedding shower? I thought you were gonna say you served tacos because these are definitely pretty enough to share.

      I went to the grocery store and bought everything I needed all over again. It was a pain but it turned out just fine. :)

  7. Rachel @ {I Love} My Disorganized Life says

    OH no! I hope everything turned out ok for the shower.What did you end up doing for that? It has been warn for a couple of weeks here in Tucson. We don’t really get a spring. Or a fall. And barely WInter. But we DO get summer, and lots of it! Chips, salsa and a fruity drink always remind me of summer. Which is kind of odd I guess, since I eat them constantly! Loving the look of these tacos. Makes we want some for dinner!

      I went back to the store and bought everything I needed. It was a bump in the road I wasn’t expecting, but all of the food turned out great!

      You know how much I love chips, salsa and a fruity drink!!

      Thanks Becky! I love baking soda. I use it so much for cleaning and getting smells out of drains. I have no idea why I didn’t I put a few boxes in there to begin with. Doh!
