Spicy enough to fit on the menu of any taqueria, yet mild enough to appeal to even non-adventurous eaters, these sriracha salmon tacos are bound to become a favorite. A garlic-chile marinade brings the heat, while fresh mango-avocado salsa has just enough sweetness to cool down the tastebuds. And they come together in just 25 minutes!
