07 Jun Grilled Salmon with Fresh Avocado Salsa

Natural Grocers Recipe, Serves 4

For the Salmon:

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Directions:

  1. Mix the salt, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper together. Rub the seasoning mix into the salmon fillets and refrigerate for at least 3o minutes.
  2. Pre-heat the grill to medium-high heat. Brush the salmon fillets with melted coconut oil and place on grill. Grill until the fish is cooked through, about 3-4 minutes on each side (the salmon should release itself from the grill when it’s ready to flip). When done, remove to a platter and let rest for about 5 minutes.
  3. Serve the salmon topped with the avocado salsa.

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados, pits removed and flesh chopped
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • Sea salt to taste

Directions:

  1. While the salmon rests in the fridge with seasoning, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Chill until ready to use.
