Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos

This weekend Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos is where it's at. This a perfect recipe in that they're super easy to make but elegant enough to be from a restaurant. Which is likely because these Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos are highly inspired by the Sopa de Crema dish at Taco Maria restaurant. The recipe reflects the restaurant because Taco Maria is pretty unassuming when you first walk in but a few bites and it'll knock your calcetines off (see what I did there?).

Although it sounds like an unusual combination, she promises it’s as delicious and satisfying as it is nutritious, and chances are you’ve got most (if not all) of the ingredients in your kitchen.

Okay, true, maybe it's a stretch categorizing this a "Reset recipe" but it's waaay healthier than classic Chicken Parm. Not that I got anything against the classic but I think I had my quota during college when I'd hit up the food truck Louie's Lunch on the regular. These days I use more egg whit...
