Salmon Tacos with Caper Dill Sauce

Yet another awesome Salmon recipe!  I found this one on Pinterest- from food blogger The Roasted Root.  I made some adjustments but cooked the fish exactly as she did and loved it.  I used white rice and I added some chopped spinach to it and saute’d it in some Coconut spray.   I also purchased a jar of spicy hot Red Cherry tomatoes with peppers mix and added it as a topping to my tacos.  I loved all the flavors of the creamy dill sauce with the spicy crunch of the peppers.   This one is definitely going to be on the rotation.
