Salmon is an easy dinner to make for your family, and it just so happens to be one of my favorite fish. However, you may have a few fish skeptics in your household who need a little more convincing. Look no further, this salmon recipe is not only super-duper simple, but it’s delicious and made with chips and salsa.

The combination of flavors may sound unique on fish, but trust me, even the finickiest of eaters will enjoy this recipe.
The entire dish is made in fifteen minutes with pantry ingredients that you probably already have on hand. You can use mild, medium or hot salsa, depending upon your taste and any variety of tortilla chips. This will salmon recipe will definitely be a hit in your household, I’m convinced.
