I still remember the first time I ate fish tacos, way back when I lived in DC. I had seen them in an advertisement and decided that I absolutely had to have them for lunch. I walked about three-quarters of a mile (in heels!) to the place that had them and put in my order. After waiting for what felt like forever, I was presented with greasy fried fish in gummy tortillas. So disappointing. Totally not worth the achy feet (or the $10).

Thankfully, that was several years ago so I’ve had lots of time to perfect my own recipe. These tacos are nothing like those other ones. Instead of being heavy and greasy, they’re light and fresh. The fish is marinated in a mix of citrus juices and spices and then grilled. Stuff that into some grilled flour tortillas and top it with spicy pickled onions (one of my favorite condiments ever) and salsa verde for a simple, fresh meal that reminds me of the beach.

Crunchy Salmon Salad with Sriracha Dressing

I might have a problem: I might be a little sriracha-obsessed. That bottle up there? I bought it last week and it’s already almond have gone. I’ve been finding ways to sneak it into things left and right. When I originally came up with the idea for this salad, I envisioned a creamy avocado-lime dressing. You see how that turned out, right? No avocado in sight; instead, I dressed it with a spicy mixture of yogurt, sriracha, and lime juice. And I don’t regret it for a second, because the dressing kind of made the salad.
