Ingredients

  • ½ avocado, peeled, stoned and diced
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped

Method

  1. Place the avocado, cherry tomatoes, coriander, lime juice and ½ tbsp of olive oil into a bowl. Toss to combine.

  3. Preheat the grill (preferably a BBQ grill or grill pan) to medium high. Once hot, place the salmon skin-side down onto the grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes, and then turn and cook for an additional 3 minutes (or until the salmon is cooked through)
  4. Serve the salmon with avocado salsa and a lime wedge. Enjoy!

* The great majority of salmon (and trout) in many countries is farmed and this does affect the nutrition content. We do encourage local produce however, food integrity is also important. Getting to know your local fish monger will help you further understand the quality and integrity of your fish options.
