Salmon and Avocado Salsa

This content will be shown before all post



Wild-caught salmon is my fish of choice and this summer recipe ranks up there as my all-time favorite way to eat it.


The avocado salsa goes so well with a mulitude of different dishes – it’s even great when eaten by the spoonful, which I may or may not do ;)


But when paired with this flavorful spiced salmon, it’s a homerun!


Consider making the salsa the night before so the flavors can develop in the fridge and so that you can have a super easy weeknight meal.

    Where do you usually buy your wild caught salmon? The good stuff is so hard to find, and very expensive to buy online. I have found some wild caught white fish ( cod and hake) at Costco, but salmon has been more difficult. Your recipe looks delicious, and I would love to try it. I love salmon, but I refuse to buy the farmed stuff.

    • Hi Carla, I usually can find mine frozen at my local Aldi grocery store for great prices! Do you have an Aldi near where you live? I have even heard a rumor that they started selling grass fed beef in their Texas stores. The grass fed beef hasn’t hit my Aldi yet, but the manager said it was coming soon!

    Awesome – quick and easy way to prepare salmon, which we eat about once per week. I made this and we loved it. I added chopped up fresh mango to my salsa and it was just amazing!
