Blackened Street Salmon Tacos

Give my Blackened Salmon Street tacos a try for your next summer grill sesh! I made these for the Hume Supernatural crew after our epic beach day, and man were they a hit. The perfectly-balanced blend of sweet and savory, smoky and tangy will have you going back for seconds.

Fish tacos are one of my favorite summer dishes for feeding hungry mouths after a busy beach day. With one large salmon fillet, we were able to feed our whole crew (8 people) and felt full and satisfied afterward without the lethargic feeling you can get from sitting down at your favorite Mexican restaurant! You can cook up this recipe at the beach or even in your kitchen at home, customize the seasoning/toppings to your own taste preferences and adapt the recipe depending on the amount of people you're feeding.
