Deconstructed Salmon Fish Taco Bowls (Keto Friendly and Whole 30)

Deconstructed Salmon Fish Taco Bowls

Make this keto friendly, fish taco bowl recipe using delicious seasoned and roasted salmon for an easy weeknight meal.

This recipe has been a favorite of mine for a while, so I thought I’d finally share it with all of you. It’s really easy and a great taco night meal that’s low carb, keto friendly, and whole 30 approved.

While I often lean towards other salmon recipes like this slow roasted butter basted salmon or my favorite keto Tuscan salmon recipe , I love this one for the days I’m craving tacos!

Any fish will work for this dish, but I really enjoy a good wild caught salmon fillet. It bakes up nicely, stays moist, and I love it with the shredded cabbage and all my favorite taco fixings.

“School” Supplies:

  • Baking Sheet
  • Knife & Cutting Board
  • Mixing Bowl

“Class” Notes:

For a quick weeknight dinner, I often roast my salmon fillets in the oven. You also can’t go wrong with tossing these onto the grill too.

To keep the salmon moist and flavorful, I start by combining a little mayo and my favorite hot sauce (typically sriracha or Cholula) to create a thin glaze to cover the top of the fish.

I usually mix up a bit of my own favorite taco seasoning spices to sprinkle over the top. I bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes.

While the salmon is baking or grilling, I prepare the rest of the taco fixings. I find I prefer shredded cabbage over shredded lettuce for fish tacos. You can easily find already pre shredded bags of cabbage or shred your own as well.

In addition to the cabbage, I love fresh salsa, especially this easy to make homemade pico de gallo. Finish it off with a bit of sliced avocado or guacamole to toss on top.

You can serve these with your favorite store bought low carb tortillas or try my Keto Tortilla Recipe too. Add a dollop of sour cream and a bit of cilantro and you’re good to go!

Worried about the fishy smell in your salmon? Try roasting it at a low temperature for longer (250 F) until it hits 145 F.
