Low Carb Salmon Smashburger Tacos with Spicy Mayo

In case you haven’t noticed, Smashburger Tacos are all over social media at the moment – and with good reason…they’re quick and delicious! I made the traditional beef smashburger tacos for my family last week, and everyone loved them. Today, I decided to try something different – I just picked up some fresh salmon during my weekly Farmer’s Market trip, so I whipped up a batch of Low Carb Salmon Smashburger Tacos and they were amazing. Light and perfect for hot summer nights or a light lunch, I served these with avocado, shredded cabbage and a spicy mayo.

I just stocked up on Mr. Tortilla low carb tortillas during Prime Day, however you can use your favorite low carb tortilla or wrap. The Mission Zero Carb or Carb Balance tortillas work well for these too.

For toppings, I wish I’d had some fresh cilantro to add to the salmon mixture or to sprinkle on top…you can also add chopped chilies, tomatoes, red onion or shredded lettuce if you’re not a cabbage fan. Whatever you decide to top these with, you’ll be making low carb smashburger tacos on repeat because of how easy these are — they only take about 4 minutes to cook – and how delicious!
