It doesn’t need to be Taco Tuesday to make these mouthwatering Chipotle Salmon Tacos with Mango Pineapple Salsa! This honey chipotle salmon is baked fresh in the oven to a perfectly caramelized glaze on the outside and oh so tender flaky salmon when you bite into it. It’s the perfect summertime meal!
An interesting fact about Honey is that it’s directly affected by where the bees are sourcing their nectar from. The most common honey is Clover, it’s sweet and mild with a touch of cinnamon. However, you can get really creative with your Chipotle Honey Glaze by swapping your honey for something like Alfalfa honey. Alfalfa house is created with nectar from bright purple alfalfa blossom and is light, herbal, mildly sweet, and delicate overall. There are all sorts of honey-like Orange blossom, Baker’s special, and more! So get creative with your honey to give this dish a new kick of flavor.
Salmon is an incredibly nutrient-rich food. Low in calories, low in saturated fat, and a good source of protein. One of the best sources of vitamin B12, potassium, and other nutrients like iron and Vitamin D. Sure, you’ll have a few extra calories with the Chipotle Honey Glaze but you can make up for it with low-grain tortillas and plenty of vegetables.
