Salmon Tacos


I am a newlywed and learned how to make these salmon tacos after I had something similar at a restaurant in town. My husband loves them and thinks I am a brilliant chef!

8 tacos



  • 4 (3 ounce) fillets salmon fillets, thawed if frozen

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 dash Cajun seasoning


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • ¼ cup diced red onion

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

For Serving:

  • ½ cup shredded mild Cheddar cheese

  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed

  • ½ cup sour cream (Optional)

  • ½ cup guacamole (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Make the salmon: Place salmon fillets into a shallow baking dish. Whisk melted butter, lemon juice, and Cajun seasoning together in a small bowl; drizzle over salmon.

  3. Bake salmon in the preheated oven until until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes.

  4. While the salmon is baking, make the salsa: Mix corn, black beans, tomato, red onion, and cilantro in a bowl.

  5. Flake cooked salmon into smaller pieces with a fork.

  6. Divide flaked salmon, salsa, and Cheddar cheese among warm tortillas. Wrap tortillas around filling and serve with sour cream and guacamole.
