Asian Style Salmon Tacos (Gluten & Dairy Free) From Front On A Plate

Tacos is always a good idea, right?! I mean there are endless variations and you can really make them with anything you want or crave. And who doesn’t love eating food with their hands? At least I love it. It feels so liberating and a little forbidden as well. So I never turn down tacos. These tacos are made with salmon that is marinated in an Asian inspired marinade. These tacos are tasty, flavorful, spicy and fresh yet only requires a few ingredients and are ready to serve in only 10-15 minutes. They are great to make both as an appetizer or main course. They’re also both gluten and dairy free.

A few tips:

  • Cut the salmon into about 1 1/2 cm big dices, and make sure all the pieces are of the same size to assure an equal baking time.
  • Using chili flakes in the marinade is optional depending on if you prefer your tacos spicy or not.
  • I like to bake my salmon in the oven on about 150 degrees to make sure it doesn’t get dry. Since the salmon is cubed the baking time will be maximum 10 minutes, but most probably less. You can divide one of the salmon pieces in two to check if they are done after about 6 minutes.
  • You can also make these tacos in a pan if preferred. If making them in the pan I would say you need to fry them for about three minutes, no more.
  • I used gluten free tortillas for these tacos, but I also love making them in salad leaves for a low carb version.
  • You can also make these tacos with tofu if you want a vegetarian option.
