Coconut Salmon Tacos marinaded in coconut milk, lime, and ginger, complete with a homemade jalapeño pineapple salsa & sriracha mayo. A total hit for your next Taco Tuesday.
So I’m a day late for Taco Tuesday. I apologize. But let’s just pretend for a minute that it’s Tuesday once again. Because TACOOOOS.
Honestly, if I had a dog I’d consider naming him ‘Taco.’ Because ‘Enchilada’ is just too much of a mouthful.
These aren’t just any tacos. These are coconut marinaded salmon tacos. The marinade is, like, the best marinade I’ve ever made.
I have to say, I’m not the best at cooking meat. It’s just not my specialty. But I’m damn good at marinades, if I do say so myself.
So if you don’t cook meat often, don’t let that deter you. The marinade does all the hard work.
Oh and there is also a BOMB jalapeño pineapple salsa. So fravorfur.
AND a sriracha mayo.
I’ve been putting sriracha on everything lately, from mac and cheese to this
mayan polenta bake. I just loves it.
Happy Wendesday, loves. XO.
For the coconut marinated salmon
1 can full fat coconut milk zest and juice of 2 limes
1 tablespoon powdered ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 pound salmon filet For the jalapeño pineapple salsa
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
2 jalapeños, minced juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped For the sriracha mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sriracha
1/4 cup mayonnaise For the additional ingredients
1/2 purple cabbage, sliced thin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
15 oz black beans
To make the salmon
Mix the coconut milk, lime juice and zest, ginger, salt, and cayenne in a quart-sized ziplock bag. Place salmon into bag, then seal the bag, removing as much air as possible.
Place bag in fridge and allow to marinade for at least 2 hours, but up to 6 hours.
Preheat oven on the broiler setting. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove salmon from marinade and place on foil.
Bake for 5-10 minutes (depending on how thick your filet is) until it’s just cooked through. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
Use a fork to break the salmon up into pieces. Set aside.
To make the jalapeño pineapple salsa
In a medium bowl, combine all salsa ingredients. Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes so the flavors can marinade together.
To make the sriracha mayonnaise
Whisk sriracha and mayo together.
