Although I don't like cutting corners when I'm cooking, I always look for easier ways to make a dish. I like to find simpler methods that save me time, but I also try not to sacrifice the taste of the original recipe. I'll often try a recipe for the first time without caring about how long it takes me or how much it costs. Then, once I feel comfortable with how to prepare it, I try to figure out ways to make it more quickly and cost-effectively. That's exactly how I discovered how to make these salmon tacos. I was at a fancy restaurant and I ordered salmon pipian enchiladas. They were delicious but they're also a lot of work to prepare at home. So I decided to try if this recipe would taste just as good in a taco; Not only was it fantastic, but much faster to make!

Ingredients

  • 1 jar pipian sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 lb salmon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 corn tortillas

Directions

  • 1
    Prepare the pipian sauce according to the instructions on the jar. Set aside.
  • 2
    Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • 3
    Add the salmon and cook on both sides for about 5-6 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
  • 4
    Remove the salmon from the pan and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • 5
    Using two forks (or your hands), shred the salmon. Remove any bones it may have.
  • 6
    Pour all the shredded salmon into the prepared pipian sauce and mix well.
  • 7
    Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 8
    Heat the tortillas over an open flame.
  • 9
    Spoon a tablespoon of the salmon preparation into the center of each tortilla.
  • 10
    Enjoy!

  • You can also serve the salmon pieces right off the grill and pour the pipian sauce over them.
