Tequila Lime Salmon Salad

To make a great salmon salad, we started by making REALLY great salmon. We topped the salmon with some brown sugar to help it caramelize and make it that much more YUM. Look at all that flavor! Taco Seasoning was the perfect compliment for the marinade. It’s an easy way to throw in quick spices, and it’s perfect every time. I’ll be using it FOREVER.
