Blackened Salmon Tacos With Creamy Lime Sauce

Easy like Sunday morning, but as spicy as Saturday night. That’s what these tacos are. Are you ready?

Once you have a good recipe for a blackening spice mixture, you can use it on so many different things! I used my traditional blackening spices on this delicious salmon and it was great. Top it with some sauce made from lime, sour cream, cilantro, sea salt and aji pepper and you have some of the best tacos around.

I discovered this salmon at Whole Foods a few weeks ago and was skeptical because it was farmed raised. However, the guy at the fish counter told me that the Omega 3 acid/Omega 6 profile for this farmed salmon was the same as that of the wild salmon. This was a good sign. I like how they have the rating system for humane conditions on their meats and seafood. Makes me feel good about what I am buying.

Back to the tacos…this is a super easy recipe. It only took a few minutes to sear the fish and a few minutes to put together the creamy lime sauce. I would recommend turmeric rice on the side, which is just regular long grain rice with 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric added to it.

Ginny is still gone on vacation to California so I am left to eat all this food by myself. Bummer, right? Well, I could probably eat fish tacos everyday so no worries. The slaw is a simple mix of red and white cabbage (in a bag at Walmart neighborhood market), cilantro, lime juice, salt, aji pepper and a little minced garlic. It gives just the right crunch.

By the way, aji amarillo pepper is a Peruvian pepper powder that someone gave me for Christmas. It may be a bit difficult to find unless you order it online. Fortunately, you can substitute a bit of cayenne pepper or any other hot pepper for this stuff. But if you can find it, get it, because it is deeelicious!

  • 1 cup sour cream
