Tried this last night was really excited about it but we were a little bit disappointed. There seemed to be something missing when we added cheese it was a bit nicer but maybe it was missing a sauce or rice. It was still nice though.

Lovely recipe, very tasty. Cooked salmon in oven at 180 fan for less than ten minutes as wanted it to be nice and juicy. Definitely a recipe I will use regularly.

Delicious! And so easy to prepare. I also prepared in advance and then just put the salmon under the grill, mmmm!

These were a real hit. They're easy to make and you can prepare it all ahead so there is little to do after work. I made both the yoghurt dip and salsa the night before and put the spices on the salmon so all I had to do was grill the salmon, warm the tacos and serve it up. I recommend turning your salmon fillets half way through so you don't end up with a soggy bottom and dry top. I found they took more like 14 min under my grill.

I've also used fresh tuna instead of salmon and this also works really well.
