Blackened Salmon topped with grilled corn and black bean relish, and queso fresco, all in a little taco cup. Perfect weeknight dinner!
School days are long. Am I right? Maybe they seem longer because we’re up earlier and going later. Early mornings and late nights mean that I am one exhausted lady. Thank goodness for quick and easy dinners like these salmon tacos. If you haven’t noticed I have a deep love for Mexican food. And when I saw these Old El Paso Soft Tortilla Taco Boats at my Tom Thumb while shopping for the week, they just made their way into my cart. They’re so fun! I knew the kids would love them.
And I was right.. As usual. I’m so smart sometimes. Plus..just look at that salmon. To blacken the salmon just give it a little spice rub, and fry it up in some olive oil. You’ll know when the salmon is cooked all the way when it is opaque in color and flakes easily. If you haven’t had salmon tacos before you’re missing out. The flavor pairs perfectly with the other usual taco toppings.
I topped the salmon with some grilled corn and black bean relish. Sigh. Just thinking about it makes me smile. It’s basically a combination of all the mexican ingredients I love. I purchased a can of grilled corn to save time, but you can absolutely substitute with fresh grilled corn.
