Tostada shells are topped with creamy cucumber tzatziki sauce, roasted salmon and a Greek vegetable tapenade with Kalamata olives and feta cheese.
While cooking for a family of 4, it can be easy to fall into some monotony with our dinner plans. Sometimes, I just want something different. This week, I’m switching up what you’ll serve for Taco Tuesday. Greek food with some Mexican flair, my Greek Salmon Tostadas are a delicious twist on the crunchy taco dish.
- Tostada shells: Crunchy flat taco shells made from either corn or flour.
- Tzatziki sauce: Creamy yogurt, fresh dill, cucumber, and bright lemon juice, Greek tzatziki is delicious and can be made easily at home!
- Salmon: Roasted simply in olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano until flaky, it is tasty and quick!
- Vegetable tapenade: A fresh, bright mix of cherry tomatoes, shredded cucumber, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese.
How to Make Greek Tzatziki Sauce
While you can use store-bought tzatziki sauce for your Greek Salmon Tostadas, it is super easy to make at home. Start by adding your yogurt in a small bowl.
Next, freshly grate in some garlic.
Then add some dill seasoning, fresh or dried.
Finish with fresh lemon juice and some salt, then stir it together.
How to Make Greek Salmon Tostadas
To start your Greek Salmon Tostadas, preheat your oven to 400 and season your salmon with olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano. Place it on a prepared baking sheet, and roast for about 15-20 minutes.
While the salmon is cooking, make your vegetable tapenade by combining halved cherry tomatoes, shredded cucumber, diced Kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Dress it with olive oil and lemon juice, then stir together.
When your salmon is finished, it will flake easily, and be a bright orangey-pink.
Assemble your tostadas by layering tzatziki sauce on a tostada shell, then top with some of the roasted salmon.
Top the salmon with the vegetable tapenade, and garnish with jalapeño slices.
Serve and enjoy this delicious twist of Greek Salmon Tostadas!
