When Marc and I go out to to eat, 98% of the time we can pretty much predict what the other is going to order. After browsing the menu, our conversation usually goes like this:
Me: “Bet you’re gonna get the burger/steak sandwich/fish and chips.”
Marc: “Yep. Bet you’re gonna get the salmon/veggie burger.”
We’re so predictable. That’s what 10 months of marriage will do to ya, kids. Really though, I like to get salmon when we go out because I loooooove salmon, but I don’t usually make it at home. I’ve been trying to change that lately, and let’s just say it didn’t start out too well as I had a hard time getting it to the right temperature. Read: overdone salmon. Yuck. I decided to give the whole make-salmon-at-home thing one last shot and make salmon tacos inspired by Alaska From Scratch. I think my luck has finally changed for the good. These salmon tacos are delicious!
The blackening seasoning is incredibly flavorful and almost gives the salmon a skin, as it blackens over the high heat of a skillet. I always love a good avocado salsa too, so this corn and avocado salsa sounded delicious to me. Topped with the cilantro yogurt sauce, these blackened salmon tacos with cilantro yogurt sauce were perfection. Maybe now I won’t have to order salmon every time we go out to eat!
