Royal Tacos

Salmon tacos

Rumor has it that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged over Ina Garten’s famous roasted chicken that they were making together one night. Although I’m not getting married to a famous prince this weekend like Meghan, I did set my alarm early to cry over her walking down the aisle and make my own Ina Garten recipe to celebrate. These tacos are AMAZING and naturally gluten and dairy free, unlike a lot of Barefoot Contessa recipes. Happy Royal Wedding weekend!

Ingredients

Slaw

  • ¾ lb of green cabbage, cored and shredded
  • ½ seedless cucumber, unpeeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup of white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons of minced dill
  • Salt and pepper

Salmon

  • 1 ¾ lbs of salmon (If you’re making this for only two people, 1 lb. is a good amount.)
  • 2 teaspoons of chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon of grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice
  • Corn tortillas
  • 4 avocados
  • ¾ teaspoon of Sriracha
  • Salt and pepper
