Get the grill going with sazon spiced salmon tacos, topped with a sweet and spicy colorful mango corn salsa for the perfect summer dinner.
Summer is not over yet and we are still getting our grill on fire for as long as we can and before the Pacific Northwest winter starts to settle in.
We are having a later summer this year, and taking full advantage of it. As of the end of August now, our tomatoes are just ripening and the corn is still sweet. I’ll take it.
Season your salmon with sazon!
We seasoned some beautiful salmon fillets with my favorite spice blend, called sazon. A gorgeous mix of achiote, garlic and oregano to name a few. It permeates whatever is touches with a gorgeous deep Latin aroma and an intense golden red hue.
What to serve with grilled salmon tacos
There is nothing more I enjoy then a good grilled fish tacos. The fried are OK, a bit heavy but I crave the smoky flavor the grill offers.
Serve sazon spiced salmon tacos with a sweet and crunchy salsa and of course, some homemade tortillas. Here we mixed up corn kernels, diced mango, fresh cilantro, purple cabbage for crunch and color and for added heat, because I can’t get enough, chopped jalapenos!
