Sweet & Spicy Baked Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa & Avocado Lime Crema

Sweet & Spicy Baked Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa & Avocado Lime Crema

These tacos have become my standby for having people over. They are fun and festive and surprisingly easy to prepare. And let’s not forget, extremely delicious.

I have been waiting for months for Rhubarb to arrive in stores. Yet every time I go shopping, rhubarb has been no where to be found.
