Incredibly flavorful sweet and spicy Thai salmon tacos! A quick and healthy 30 minute dinner that will delight salmon lovers!
1 – 1 1/2 pounds salmon (or 4 medium/6-ounce salmon fillets)
1 cup sweet Thai chili sauce (you can find this in the Asian section at most grocery stores)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
2 cups thinly sliced cabbage or coleslaw (without dressing)
1 mango, thinly sliced
8 taco-sized flour tortillas
Combine sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic, cilantro, and (optional) ginger in a bowl and whisk til smooth and well mixed. Reserve half of the sauce and set it aside.
Add salmon fillets to the bowl with 1/2 of the sauce and toss to coat well. (If desired, you may marinate this for 30 minutes – overnight, but marinating is not necessary)
Cook the salmon either on a nonstick skillet for 4-6 minutes on each side, or in the oven turned to broil for the same amount of time. Cook until fillets are pink and easily flake with a fork.
Assemble tacos with cabbage (or cole slaw), mango slices, salmon, and top with remaining reserved sauce and drizzle with fresh lime juice. Serve immediately.
