These easy Salmon Nachos are one of the very best meals I make. I think they’ll be your favorite too!
I’m not sure when Nacho Night first started in our family, but I have very clear, happy memories of enjoying salmon nachos when my oldest was very young, so about nine years ago. Matt and I would sit at opposite ends of the dining table, eating nachos and playing World of Warcraft together (did I mention we are total NERDS?), and a good time was had by all.
When the youngest was a newborn, we ate nachos while listening to music and working on jigsaw puzzles after the kids were in bed. Of course we’ve had Nacho Night in the years between the birth of our kids, but for some reason I warmly associate salmon nachos with the sleep-deprived bliss that is having a new baby.
When I know it’s Nacho Night, I’m counting the hours until dinner. If you want really quick salmon nachos, use a pouch of salmon instead of cooking your own. That’s actually how this recipe started in our house, but I upgraded it to fresh salmon at some point. Both ways are tasty, but the fresh salmon is worth the extra time.
