Adobado Salmon Tacos with Mango Pico de Gallo

Adobado is a type of Mexican barbecue, and who doesn’t love a good barbecue? Chef Reyna Venegas turned the hungry tummies of Saturday at The Ranch guests into happy ones with these scrumptious and nutritious salmon tacos. The one-day immersive program ends with a tour of the 6-acre organic farm, a cooking demonstration, and tapas tasting. The salmon was fall-apart tender, the mango pico de gallo was a fun and refreshing twist on the traditional tomato version, and together they were a perfect pair wrapped in soft homemade blue corn tortillas.
