Grilled blackened salmon is the perfect way to switch up taco night. If you’re a fish taco lover you’ve gotta try these!
It’s grilled sockeye salmon, with a simple blackened rub. And to top things off I made a simple spicy chimichurri to top over these to bring it all together!
These blackened salmon tacos come together very quickly. All it takes is a little rub, grill it up and blending of some cilantro and pepper with some olive oil and you’ve got easy and delicious fish tacos!
Now normally, I’m a white fish fan when it comes to fish tacos, but the high fat content in this salmon (I’m using sockeye specifically) is heavenly.
It’s buttery smooth and keeps the fish from having a dry texture which makes these blackened salmon tacos absolutely delicious!
Here’s a quick tip when grilling fish. Brush a little bit of oil on the grates and the flesh of the skin. This will prevent any sticking and that awesome charred fish from getting torn up.
I like to use these silicon brushes to handle this work.
And if you’re looking for a carbless way to enjoy this, try adding it to an avocado and enjoying a few halves!
