Grilled Salmon Tacos with Avocado Crema – delicious, healthy and easy tacos loaded with crunchy spicy slaw, a flavorful avocado crema and chunks of grilled tender salmon.

We’re in full-on grilling mode these days and are so excited to share these wonderful Grilled Salmon Tacos with you today. We adore tacos of any kind, but fish tacos hold a special place on my list of fabulous favorites. Salmon is a terrific choice for tacos. It cooks up quick and easy and is the ultimate taco filling for a fast weeknight dinner. Grilled Salmon Tacos are also delicious enough to serve at a weekend dinner party, emphasis on party! Everybody will think you fussed, but really not at all!

Today, we’re thrilled to be featuring a few of our favorite, authentic Cacique® products. This amazing product line of Hispanic cheeses, chorizos, and cremas can take your family favorite recipes from good…to great! Cotija cheese has a strong, salty flavor and is often used as a topping (woohoo tacos!) or mixed into sauces. Traditionally, Cotija is made with cow’s milk. It’s a seasonal cheese produced by artisan cheese makers. Cotija rates as one of Mexico’s most recognized cheeses.

I created an amazing Avocado Crema, using Cacique® Crema Mexicana. It has a pure rich taste, smooth creamy consistency similar to crème fraiche, and a slight tinge of buttery sweetness. Used as an everyday table cream with a neutral fresh-tasting flavor, it’s pourable, rich and silky and a great addition to both sweet and savory dishes. If you have any leftover after making this Avocado Crema, try pouring it over fresh sliced strawberries. It’s a fantastic ending to this delicious meal.

My husband and I host a monthly dinner with the whole family; kids, spouses, grandkids and dogs. We often try to center the dinner around an upcoming birthday, holiday or special occasion. Grilled Salmon Tacos with Avocado Crema are the perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day this year. Our guys all love tacos so these are on the menu again! These salmon tacos were served on grilled mini-street sized flour tortillas, but feel free to use your favorite taco shell like fajita style flour tortillas, corn tortillas or even use all the components as a topping on a salad for the carb conscious in your family.

Create and share quick Mexican recipes that make it easy to savor the tastes and flavors of Mexican food without spending a long time in the kitchen. Be sure to dollop on plenty of Avocado Crema made with Cacique® Crema Mexicana, then big spoonfuls of the easy spicy slaw, juicy chunks of well spiced grilled salmon and a healthy sprinkling of Cacique® Cotija cheese! These delicious tacos taste like a party!
