Fish tacos have slowly become one of our favorite dinners. They’re a great way to get in more omega-3 fats, and a delicious way to eat more veggies- and in this case fruit!

These salmon tacos are fresh and flavorful, and topped with a simple pineapple salsa for the ultimate flavor combination.

They’re gluten-free friendly, and seriously so easy to make!

I normally always make my fish tacos using cod or mahi mahi, but decided to change things up with a simple spiced salmon. The smokey chili seasoning adds the most delicious flavor to these tacos, and pairs so well with the sweet and spicy pineapple salsa.

This 30-minutes meal is a must make if you’re looking for new ways to incorporate fish into your week.

What you’ll need to make salmon tacos with pineapple salsa

  • soft-shell tortillas- I love to use corn tortillas for this recipe. For added flavor, you can char them over the stove or with a kitchen torch
  • salmon– you can make your own spice rub like I did, or season the salmon with your favorite pre-made spice mix
  • pineapple salsa– this fresh topping adds sweetness and spice, and is made with fresh pineapple, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, red onion and lime juice
  • spicy slaw– cabbage slaw is always a must on my fish tacos, and I like to flavor mine with a little hot sauce in addition to mayo, lime juice and salt

These salmon tacos are so easy to make and packed with flavor. The pineapple salsa is a must for a perfectly balanced weeknight dinner.

I can’t wait for you guys to try them!
