In a small bowl, combine chili powder, salt, cumin, garlic powder and pepper; rub over both sides of salmon. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add fish. Cook until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 3-4 minutes on each side.
Remove fish to cutting board. Gently flake into bite-size pieces.
Place fish in tortillas and top with coleslaw. If desired, serve with lime, radishes and jalapeno.
Salmon Tacos Tips
How else can you season salmon for tacos?
Go directly to your spice rack for more ideas on how to season salmon for tacos. If you want to amp up the heat, use chipotle powder instead of chili powder, or add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper. If you want a smokier flavor for your fish, use ancho chili powder plus smoked paprika (about 1/2 teaspoon).
What other toppings can you put on salmon tacos?
Other toppings you can put on salmon tacos run the gamut. In addition to fresh lime, radishes and sliced jalapenos, you can add toppings like avocado, fresh cilantro, diced mango or pineapple for a cooling contrast in flavor. If you want, pickled red onions and a dash of hot sauce add extra zing. You can always switch up the slaw and serve honey lime coleslaw or strawberry pineapple coleslaw instead of the one our recipe calls for.
What do you serve with salmon tacos?
You can serve so many things with salmon tacos, like Instant Pot black beans or delicious Southwestern rice. Plus, you can't go wrong with a side of chips, guacamole and your favorite homemade salsa recipe. A fresh corn salad or grilled corn in husks would make a fuller spread.
