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.

I don’t like fish but really wanted to try this recipe. I used chicken thighs and it turned out great. Thanks!
What a great way to repurpose a recipe!
Great base recipe! left off taco seasoning out s it is too much salt. I did use the tequila :-) Just marinate for an hour or two and sprinkle chili powder on top. I also just cooked on the stove top to sear the skin and keep the oven off in TX heat. As noted in reviews, asome don’t like fish BUT this is exactly the recipe to use to make you like Fish! keynote:
experience) – do not marinate fish for more that 4 hrs. it changes the texture. (aka ceviche)
Good tip, Deb!

Everthing was good except of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix
lool, I live in Mexico and we do not have such a thing called Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix
I understand! I have a homemade version: Homemade Taco Seasoning
I made the vinaigrette, it was awful. Could you please double check the ingredients. It did not look anything like the picture.
That vinaigrette sounds insane, omg yum!
Could I make this without using tequila and still get the same flavors?
It would taste differently without the tequila, but could still be good! You could substitute chicken broth. The alcohol does cook out during the process though if that is the concern. Thanks for stopping by!
