It’s Taco Tuesday, my most favorite day of the week! One of the EASIEST dinners that I make is a salmon bake. Sometimes we have the salmon with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, but most of the time I make tacos with it because the salmon roasts in the oven with sliced onions and bell peppers with your favorite teriyaki sauce, so it’s a no-brainer to heat up some tortillas and make a taco dinner out of it.
Here’s what the salmon looks like when it comes out of the oven:
This is 2 lbs of Atlantic Salmon, skin off (I have the butcher remove the skin and I cut it up and feed it to my Pugs ~ they go nuts for it and it’s so good for their skin and fur)!
This recipe is SO easy! 1-2 lbs. of salmon, 1 onion sliced, 1 or 2 bell peppers (I use red and orange), olive oil, your favorite teriyaki sauce and corn or flour tortillas. That’s it! Here’s the end result! See below for the recipe.
If you get a chance to try my favorite teriyaki sauce ~ Bone Suckin’ Yaki ~ which I purchase at Whole Foods…definitely pick up a few bottles. I always have at least 3 bottles in my cupboard because I use it in this salmon bake, my chicken teriyaki stir fry and for many other recipes that I make. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and tangy and is a thicker sauce which is a great, because some of the bottled teriyaki sauces I’ve used are far too runny and thin, so this is a thicker sauce which holds up much better in an oven bake or stir-fry.
