Taco Joint: Quality tacos close to home

Taco Joint: Quality tacos close to home

Just north of Dean Keaton lies a discrete (yet colorful) taco joint, coincidently called Taco Joint. Unfortunately, after four years in Austin I only recently discovered this little gem. The moment you walk in you know you’re in a special place. A myriad of colorful sketches line the walls surrounding a few non-descript tables and an open kitchen. The smell of sizzling beef, carnitas, and crackling peppers lets you know you’re in a real taco joint.

The casual, vibrant atmosphere suggests that this is a place where true taco enthusiasts come to munch and relax. The menu is simple and diverse, offering breakfast and lunch. The beauty of each taco lies in its simplicity and authenticity. Generous portions of meat or fish are heaped onto homemade tortillas with a variety of accoutrement, ranging from your usual peppers and onions to the more imaginative Gouda cheese and honey-lime cabbage slaw.

Since it was my first time, I decided to try a surf and turf variety. The friendly woman at the counter immediately suggested the fried fish taco, and I agreed without hesitation. I wasn’t about to eat just one taco, and the Gouda cheese struck my eye, so I went for the El senior Crockett as well.

The fish taco was a simple, elegant combination of perfectly fried fish and honey-lime cabbage slaw. The slaw had an almost honey-mustard taste, which went wonderfully with the crispy fish. The fish was soft and warm, complimenting the crunch of the batter and the slaw nicely.

The El senior Crockett was a really nice surprise with tender, juicy strips and pepper. I love smoked Gouda, and I have to say I loved it even more on this taco. The smoky flavor of the cheese was a well-conceived, and ingenious addition to the classic beef fajita taco.

Crunchy Blackened Salmon Tacos with Serrano Slaw

Now, this is a new taco recipe that I hope you all will try IMMEDIATELY! These Crunchy Blackened Salmon Tacos with Serrano Slaw are absolutely perfect in every way!!

I love making blackened salmon, it’s one of my favorite go-to recipes. For these tacos, I’ve taken inspiration from my recipe here and transformed the salmon into a fantastic taco that you will want to put on your weekly dinner rotation! Using some Cajun-inspired flavors along with gluten-free panko breadcrumbs, the salmon is coated in a perfect, crunchy crust that is packed with so much flavor. Served in tortillas with a tangy, crisp serrano-slaw and a drizzle of creamy aioli, the end result is just magic! And if preferred, these would be great to serve in bibb lettuce cups.

I also highly recommend making these Crunchy Blackened Salmon Tacos next time you are hosting a small, casual dinner party! You can make the slaw and the aioli ahead of time, that way all you need to do is fry up your crunchy blackened salmon and heat up the tortillas and dinner is served in no time with ease! I recommend serving alongside Martha’s Mexican Rice and maybe a nice side salad — and, of course, a margarita!
