Ready Time

40 mins

Yields

8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves and stems, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Season the salmon fillets with salt and black pepper.

Grill the salmon for 4-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

While the salmon is grilling, combine the diced avocado, red onion, chopped jalapeño, and chopped cilantro in a large bowl. Squeeze the fresh lime juice over the top and stir gently to combine.

Once the salmon is cooked, remove it from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.

Serve each fillet with a generous spoonful of the avocado salsa on top.

Notes

For the best results, make sure your salmon fillets are at room temperature before grilling to ensure even cooking. If you prefer a more well-done salmon, cook for an additional minute per side.

Don’t overmix the avocado salsa, as it can become mushy.

Instead, gently fold the ingredients together to preserve the texture. To prevent the avocado from browning, sprinkle a bit of lime juice over the top of the salsa before serving.

If you’re not a fan of spice, you can reduce the amount of jalapeño or omit it altogether.

Conversely, add more if you like a little extra heat. Feel free to customize the salsa to your taste by adding other ingredients like diced tomatoes or minced garlic.

Just be sure not to overpower the delicate flavor of the salmon.

For a more vibrant presentation, garnish with an extra sprinkle of chopped cilantro or a lime wedge.
