Grilled Salmon Tacos with Chipotle Sauce

Flavorful leftover fish gives you a jump-start on dinner; just a few embellishments turn this Cedar-Planked Salmon into a whole new meal. Set out a stack of warm tortillas and bowlfuls of taco fillings to make this a convivial, casual family supper where everyone assembles his or her own tacos to taste. For speedier preparation, use packaged angel hair slaw instead of shredded cabbage.
