These oven broiled salmon al pastor tacos are perfect for making during the week when you're craving tacos. You can easily prep these the day before and they'll taste even better. Keep extra marinade separate and use it on the tacos for an extra kick of flavour and don't forget the grilled pineapple. They add a sweet addition to these tacos!
For these salmon al pastor tacos, you'll need the following to make the marinade. Have a look at the substitutions if you need any.
For the salmon tacos:
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the dried chillies and toast them for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Transfer the toasted chillies to a bowl and cover with just boiled water and let them rehydrate for about 20 minutes.
In a blender, pour in 1/2 cup of the reserved soaking liquid from the chillies along with the chillies and all other marinade ingredients. Blend on high until smooth.
Place the salmon cubes into a baking dish or plastic bag and pour half of the marinade over the salmon. Refrigerate for at least two hours, or overnight. When I made this originally, I kept the fish whole and cooked it, however, I prefer broiling the salmon cubes and suggest doing that instead.
Keep leftover marinade separate until ready to eat.
When ready to cook, turn the oven to broil on high (550℉). Grease a baking sheet with some avocado oil if needed.
Heat the tacos on a nonstick skillet for about 20 seconds per side and keep warm in a tortilla warmer, or on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel.
Transfer the salmon to the baking sheet along with the pineapple and broil for eight to ten minutes, depending on your preference, until slightly browned and cooked through. Check on the pineapple after five minutes. Alternatively, you can grill the pineapple for more char.
Assemble the tacos together with salmon, pineapple, onion and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges and the reserved marinade on the side. Enjoy!
