What if I told you that you could have a delicious Lenten dish on your dinner table in 20 minutes? Seriously, this amazing dish is so simple to make, and tastes incredible. My stomach is growling right now as I type this post.

I had never made fish tacos with salmon, but when I saw this recipe I had to give them a try. I have to say they are my new favorite. I topped the fish with a creamy avocado salsa that can easily be made while the salmon is cooking.

You’ll know your salmon is done cooking when it flakes easily—which makes preparing these tacos a cinch. Simply layer the cooked chunks into corn tortillas and top with the creamy avocado salsa. For added heat, add thin slices of jalapeño.
