Spicy salmon tacos

Ingredients for 4-6 people

  • 1 salmon filet
  • cajun "blackened seasoning"
  • red pepper flakes (optional)
  • taco-sized tortillas, corn or flour

Slaw mix

  • 1 bag cole slaw mix (or 1/2 head thinly sliced cabbage)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 6 finely chopped scallions
  • 2 thinly sliced shallots
  • pile of chopped cilantro
  • couple pinches of salt


  • Mix all slaw ingredients and let settle for a while.
  • Remove skin from salmon (or halfway through baking, pull it off). Coat with cajun spice and pepper flakes. Bake at 400F until done, 15-20 minutes. Flake and remove rib and pin bones.
  • Heat tortillas in frying pan.
  • Load tortillas with fish, slaw and add a sauce to taste.

This goes really well with Mexican Street Corn. Thanks to Josh Barna for the idea and implementation on Sept 10, 2022.
