Chipotle Honey Glazed Salmon Tacos

Chipotle Honey Glazed Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa

Yesterday was “Taco Tuesday” so I decided to combine two of the most trendy ingredients of the summer, salmon and chipotle, in a new dish!

Salmon is the superfood fish that is packed with Omega 3′s which help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, while keeping your mind sharp and skin glowing! This colorful and vitamin-rich fish has been one of the most searched foods of the summer and I just so happen to think that I’ve created the perfect salmon recipe!

Chipotle and Sriracha topped the list of summer spice favorites with no surprise to me!  Since winning Yahoo! Shine’s Supper Club in June our Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers have been the most popular post on Little Leopard Book to date!

The chipotle honey glaze on this salmon recipe is slightly sweet, slightly spicy and oh-so-scrumptious!

Salmon Tacos with Fresh Mango Salsa

The glazed salmon was so flavorful, I kept eating it right out of the foil as I was shredding it for the tacos!  To be honest, I’m just lucky any of the salmon actually made it into a tortilla ;-)
