Grilled salmon is topped with a generous dollop of fresh avocado, tomato and cilantro salsa--healthy, delicious and oh-so-simple.

  • Servings: 2

Ingredients:

Salmon:
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2× 6 oz Salmon Fillets
¼ tsp Kosher Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
Salsa:
1 Mexican Hass Avocado
1 Large Red Tomato
1 Tbsp Fresh Snipped Cilantro
¼ tsp Kosher Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Springs Flat Italian Parsley, for garnish

Directions:

Rub the grill grate with the olive oil. Heat grill to medium. Season the salmon with the salt and pepper. Grill salmon steaks for 7 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa by peeling, pitting and dicing the avocado. Place avocado in a medium bowl. Core and dice tomato. Add to medium bowl. Add cilantro, salt, pepper and olive oil. Toss salsa ingredients. Remove salmon to two medium plates. Place 1/2 of salsa on each plate, beside and partially on top of salmon. Garnish with flat parsley springs.
