Teriyaki Salmon Taco Bowl

When its taco Tuesday, you eat fish on Tuesdays, and you want to be healthy, then why not combine the two and make this Teriyaki Salmon Taco Bowl.

This taco bowl is easy to make and feels light on your body when after you eat. This recipe combination was inspired by the recipes given to me from Auckland Seafood School. My husband and I took a cooking class with Paulie Hoonton at the Auckland Seafood School, where we learned cutting techniques and how to marinate salmon and this is what we came up with!
