Chili Encrusted Salmon Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa are a tropical get-a-way on a plate. Fresh salmon is encrusted with a light spicy chili and then served with fresh limey slaw and Mango Avocado Salsa. This is bright, colorful, flavorful yet easy dinner.

    1. Heat your oven to 425 degrees and move the rack as close as you can to the top.
    2. In a small bowl combine the chili powder, granulated garlic, and granulated onion. 
    3. Carefully cover all of the salmon with the chili powder mixture.
    4. Lay the salmon onto your baking stone or greased baking sheet and pop it in the oven. 
    5. While the salmon is cooking make the salsa.
    6. Dice up your read onion and chilies. You don’t have to use 2 colors of chillies, but I think its really pretty. 
    7. If you’re using fresh mango, carefully cut it into bite sized pieces. If you are using frozen mango let it thaw for a bit and cut it into bite sized pieces.
    8. Add the mango to the chillies and onion.
    9. Cut your avocado up into small chunks and add it to the rest of the ingredients.
    10. Squeeze your lime juice on top you will only need 1/2 the lime. Season with a little salt.
  1. Let the salsa sit and prep the slaw
  2. In a bowl mix the other half of your lime juiced and the coleslaw mix. 
  3. Warm your tortillas.

    Heat your tortillas for 30 seconds on each side over high heat.

  4. The Salmon should be done after 12 minutes.
  5. Break it up into big chunks, place it in the tortillas with the slaw and salsa.
  6. Voila! You have a fresh delicious dinner!

    My fiancé would LOVE this dish, and it looks possible, despite my lack of confidence cooking seafood. I’m pinning it for later. Thanks!!
