Salmon with Avocado Salsa Recipe

So I don’t do many recipe posts because, duh, I don’t cook. I am lucky enough to have a talented hubs in the kitchen who likes to cook so I don’t have too. I can make a few things here and there but I am no chef. I do miss baking…I could go for some cupcakes. Then I wonder why I am not losing weight like I would like too. See how quickly things go off the track.

Back to my intended topic – food. Specifically a recent dinner. I have been craving salmon for a little while now. That idea has been shot down several times due to the fact that when my husband first got here we bought salmon at the local grocery, cooked it up and my husband found a bone in his. Well in our house that is the best way to get on the banned food list. Certain foods have bones, mostly ones that I eat do not. Gross. So he has said no salmon, no way. Granted it is very fresh, mostly butchered while you wait but the bones are not something we can deal with. Imagine my happiness when we stumbled upon boneless and skinless salmon over the weekend! It is the small things in life, really. 

Well before our shopping adventures, I was skimming Pinterest to see if I could find anything new, exciting, easy, and not one of our go-to recipes. Well this recipe for an avocado salsa salmon popped up. Sold. I love avocado and they are so cheap here that you cannot beat stocking up. I made some modifications to the recipe (which is super simple) and it was a huge hit. Takes about 4 minutes to whip this ‘salsa’ up, so I was already a fan before my husband had the ingredients chopped up. Add this to your menu. No, really. This week. Let me know how you liked it.

Ingredients:
2 ripe avocados
1 small lime
1 clove garlic (or garlic powder)
1 small tomato diced
1 tsp. onion powder
S & P to taste.





Hubs sliced the avocado so it would be a little more hearty than just mushing it and having a faux guacamole. Chop or mince the garlic clove then add all the ingredients to the avocado slices and mixed to break up the slices slightly. After it is mixed, squeeze the lime to add just the juice. Mix it up well and chill it.  Serve it on top of your salmon or just on the side, like me, and you’ve got a winner, winner, no more boring salmon dinner.
