My perfect taco equation is pretty simple: pair your protein or veggie base with salsa or slaw, plus something creamy. I paired these salmon tacos with homemade peach salsa and avocado crema. Both are super easy to make!

Main Ingredients + Some Nutrition Notes
Salmon: Salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids in our diet. These heart-healthy fats are essential because our bodies do not produce any on their own. It is important to get enough omega-3s in our diet because they are anti-inflammatory, can help lower cholesterol levels, and may help protect against heart disease. Salmon is also a good source of B-vitamins, antioxidants, and potassium.
Peaches: This stone fruit is a great source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Remember that many of the nutrients are also found in the skin of fruits, not just the flesh, so don’t peel them!
Red Bell Pepper: Red bell peppers are one of the best sources of vitamin C. Red bell peppers, compared to green, yellow, or orange, are also high in many different antioxidants. The redder the pepper, the richer it is in antioxidants!
