We asked leading food bloggers to share their love for wild Alaska fish tacos by participating in a series of recipe, writing and photography challenges. After receiving loads of great submissions, we picked out the following posts as our favorites.

Grilled Salmon Tacos with Sweet Potato, Lime, Cilantro Salsa

“My mom used to say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I firmly believe that my deployment of this old adage led to the successful courtship of my now-husband. Yet, I should note that, at least in the case of my husband, two other critical elements were at play: a Weber grill and cold beer.”


Going Loco With Tacos

“The salmon tacos are a slight diversion from the usual. First of all, it’s not chunk pieces of seafood in a shell. We decided to cook the salmon and mix it with ingredients to create something similar to tuna salad. It has a mix of creamy crunch with a mix of spices used to season the fish. Secondly, salmon salad deserved a different serving method, so we decided to go with taco shells.”


Alaska Coho Salmon Deconstructed Taco Salad

“What do you do when you have a lot of leftovers from the previous night\'s Tex-Mex salmon taco fiesta? You make taco salad, of course! I\'m a huge fan of a deconstructed taco salad.”


Easy Alaska Crab Tacos

“This taco recipe using fresh crab takes just 15 minutes to make. The key is to use the freshest ingredients possible and nice big lumps of crab. My store was out of all their jumbo lump Alaskan crab so I made do with smaller pieces; it’s much cheaper but worth the extra dollars for the good stuff when you can get it.”

Early Cinco de Mayo: Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Fish Tacos with Mango-Coconut Salsa

“I want to share with you another fish taco recipe I came up with last night that would be a perfect celebration dish for Cinco de Mayo. I bought my fish at Costco and I actually used frozen salmon portions. I splurged and bought what I think is THE BEST SALMON IN THE WORLD: Wild Sockeye Salmon from the Copper River in Alaska.”


Battered Baked Alaskan Fish Tacos with Spicy Peruvian Cilantro Sauce

“Green tacos! These are also sustainable. Wild Alaskan halibut is ranked the “best choice” for halibut by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch.”


Mini Alaskan Crab Tacos

“A more correct title for this post might be Vietnamese crab salad mini tacos, for that is essentially what these are. The filling is slightly adapted from goi buoi--Vietnamese pomelo and crab salad--with some avocado crema, red cabbage and sliced red onions. The shells are fried sui gow skins, an idea I got from Andrea Nguyen, who writes that she borrowed it from Trader Vic\'s.”

“I really enjoyed the sweetness because it balanced out the bitter cabbage in the slaw and the nuts played up the crunch on the outside of the fish. Together the flavors made for a delicious taco that was a little bit sweet and a lot savory, perfect if you don’t generally go for spicy food. If I cannot make it to the islands this year, this taco is as close a substitute you can get.”
