Ingredients

  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds salmon (or 4 medium/6-ounce salmon fillets)
  • 1 cup sweet Thai chili sauce (you can find this in the Asian section at most grocery stores)
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage or coleslaw (without dressing)
  • 1 mango, thinly sliced
  • 8 taco-sized flour tortillas
  • lime wedges

Instructions

  • Combine sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic, cilantro, and (optional) ginger in a bowl and whisk til smooth and well mixed. Reserve half of the sauce and set it aside.
  • Add salmon fillets to the bowl with 1/2 of the sauce and toss to coat well. (If desired, you may marinate this for 30 minutes - overnight, but marinating is not necessary)
  • Cook the salmon either on a nonstick skillet for 4-6 minutes on each side, or in the oven turned to broil for the same amount of time. Cook until fillets are pink and easily flake with a fork.
  • Assemble tacos with cabbage (or cole slaw), mango slices, salmon, and top with remaining reserved sauce and drizzle with fresh lime juice. Serve immediately.
