Salmon Tacos

salmon tacos

  • 2 Flour tortillas
  • 1/2 pound of fresh salmon
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 of onion
  • 3 lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 ripened avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of hot sauce
  • lemon juice to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • salt to taste

We start with the marinade by pouring it into a mixing bowl with the lemon juice, water, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and salt.  Place salmon in bowl and let sit for 30 minutes.
While the salmon is marinating cut the onion, bell pepper, tomato, lettuce and avocado into thin strips.
Heat the marinade in a frying pan with a few drops of olive oil.  Grill salmon by placing it skin side down on a medium flame for about 8 minutes.  Continue to marinade as salmon is cooking.  After 8 minutes, flip salmon and cook for another 5 minutes.
Heat tortillas in the grill or microwave and place on a dish.  Add vegetables and jalapeno.  Top everything off with pieces of the salmon and sour cream.

Coastal Jewelry Displays

I love the coastal fee of these jewelry displays and boxes!  They would fit right in with my home decor.  I also love the idea of displaying jewelry instead of hiding it away.  Often times I forget about the pieces I have tucked away in boxes, and end up wearing the same pieces I leave on my nightstand over and over.

Spring Beauty Faves

My Spring beauty favorites are mostly about renewal.  Getting rid of the old and in with the new!  I’m all about sloughing off dry skin and hydrating a fresh face.  Take a look at my top picks for Spring:
1} L’oreal Hair Mask $7.50 I use this once a week and it helps to keep my dry ends hydrated
2} Burt’s Bees Coconut + Pear Lip Balm $3  This stuff goes quick!  If you can find it, grab it.
3} L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm – Rose Elixir $6 This is a sheer moisturizing lipstick, you can layer the color to get it lighter or darker
4} Essie Spring Nail Polish Set $17 Right now my favorite colors are lavender and turquoise!
5} Oil of Olay Microdermabrasion $32 I use this morning and at night to slough off any dry skin
6} Handmade Hair Ties $7  Poor quality hair elastics cause split ends – these are worth the $$$
7} Kiehl Overnight Facial Mask $35  I think it’s important to moisturize day and night
8} Burt’s Bees Peppermint Foot Lotion $8  I love this stuff!  I put it on before I go to bed and I wake up with smooth/lovely smelling feet!
9} Pumice Stone $4  I believe that the pumice stone is a beauty basic, it doesn’t matter how pretty your pedicure is if your heels are cracked and dry!!
