Grilled Salmon Soft Tacos Will Have Dinner Ready in 10 Minutes

I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for Taco Tuesday. When I was in college, my local watering hole had a weekly rotation of budget-friendly grub, and Taco Tuesday was my favorite night. The spiced ground beef tacos topped with salsa and a sprinkling of shredded cheese could be mine for 50 cents a pop. I could have a feast (including beverage!) for under $5.

Now that I’m past my college bar food days, I’m looking for food that includes a few more food groups (and won’t give me heartburn), but I’m still watching my budget. These Grilled Salmon Soft Tacos can be mine for not much more than those college tacos, and they’re a lot tastier.

If Taco Tuesday isn’t on your meal plan rotation, this recipe is the perfect place to start. You can grill a fresh salmon fillet, or you can use leftovers. If you really want to cut down the prep time, use canned salmon. We love shortcuts and a can of salmon or tuna can be a lifesaver to get dinner on the table fast. We left the ingredient amounts loose because this is a great recipe that can be whipped up for 2 people, or multiplied for a big group. Leave us a comment and let us know how these Grilled Salmon Soft Tacos turned out for you.
