Grilled Salmon Tacos with Pineapple Salsa are loaded with fresh and delicious flavors!
Today’s Grilled Salmon Tacos with Pineapple Salsa recipe has been on repeat at our house for the last few months. It’s so good – and it is the perfect way to enjoy leftover salmon as a second meal.
If you’re a regular reader here at A Family Feast, you might remember us sharing this fantastic grilled salmon recipe last month. That recipe makes a generous amount – so we made some Grilled Salmon Tacos with the leftovers, and topped it with Pineapple Salsa, an easy homemade crema, plus diced tomatoes and avocado.
We served our Grilled Salmon Tacos with Pineapple Salsa on flour tortillas, but these tacos would be equally delicious served on some lightly fried corn tortillas as well.
Can I use any cooked salmon in this taco recipe?
Can I make this ahead of time?
And, you can also do all of the ingredient prep ahead of time. Cook your salmon, prepare the pineapple salsa, and mix up the crema as much as a day ahead of time. Then – assemble your tacos for a quick weeknight meal or a great dinner party.
