Wild salmon broiled with a smoky, sweet barbecue sauce and topped with massaged kale combine in these Easy BBQ Salmon & Kale Tacos – perfect for a weeknight meal that’s ready in under 20 minutes!
This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about bringing the family back to the table for dinner. When I saw this theme, I started reminiscing about dinnertime as a child. On weeknights, we had the typical southern meat and 2 (or 3) plates: fried or barbecued chicken with rice, corn and green beans or the occasional spaghetti or sloppy joe dinner. Though the meals were not always healthy (often not), I enjoyed sitting at the table with my family.
Today, I cook several times a week – not for a crowd. I stick with easy meals that get me in and out of the kitchen quickly. I make most of my dishes from scratch but I took a short cut and used Trader Joe’s barbecue sauce in this one. It’s a big time saver for quick weeknight meals – particularly this broiled salmon. I like that the ingredient list looks just like one I’d use to make my own barbecue sauce.
I’m sharing a new version of one of my favorite quick meals that features two of my favorite foods. I eat tacos a lot – usually salmon or cod with a cabbage slaw or some type of salsa. With kale, wild caught salmon and black beans this recipe could qualify as a “superfood” meal – if you are into that kind of thing.
You will have leftover salmon and kale – that means less work for tomorrow’s lunch or dinner. Store the salmon and kale separately and enjoy as a salad the next day or make more tacos!
