Roasted Salmon Tacos with Lemon and Feta Cream Sauce


My postings have been a bit sporadic lately. I am posting entirely from my phone or tablet since my laptop died two weeks ago. This is such a minor thing in the scheme of life but it is entirely frustrating to me as it takes so much longer to create a post and I don’t have the same capability to edit my photos. So you get the raw pictures of my plate.

My family loves salmon and I don’t make it nearly often enough. This is such a simple meal that it took about 30 minutes to make and have us seated at the table!

Verdict:

This was so very delicious. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the cream sauce added a hint of freshness to the whole dish. We just added some baby spinach leaves to our tacos but you can add whatever you like to yours!

I served this with a hearty side salad for a complete meal.
