Blackened Salmon Street Tacos
Now these tacos are the definition of elevated. When we think of Salmon, tacos are usually not on top of that list. This is what makes this dish so special. We go the traditional route with all our Street Tacos, using doubled up corn tortillas to ensure a flavorful, but clean bite every time. Gently placing juicy, flavorful fillets of blackened salmon on a bed of cabbage is just the beginning. Taking the palate further, cilantro, tomatoes, green onions, and jalapeños are added to make sure this taco lives up to its elevated reputation. If you are wondering about the sauce, don't you worry because there's not one, but two. Before anything is added to these fresh corn tortillas, a chipotle aioli is spread and pairs wonderfully with the spice coming from the jalapeños. A cilantro-lime crema is the finishing touch. Not only does this provide an essential acidity to the dish, but it also keeps all of the different components safely tucked between the two corn walls, making a near-perfect taco. Sweet, juicy, salty, spicy, what more can one ask for?
These tacos are paired with a mild salsa, a fresh lime slice, and a side dish of your choice. We recommend getting our classic Idaho Fries or our House-Made Chips as these flavors go nicely with the sweetness coming from these tacos. Enjoy this meal when the sun is shining, letting you experience true summer with the view of the Rogue River on our riverfront patio.
