Salmon with Avocado and Pineapple Salsa
We have friends that head off to Alaska every year and catch crazy amounts of Salmon. I’ve been lucky enough to be on the receiving end when they return. Salmon for dayzzzzzz!! I now have a freezer full of these gorgeous Salmon Filets and the opportunities for new recipes are endless!!
With the hot summer months upon us, my palate drifts towards Island flava!! Get ready to kick it up a notch – we’re adding a Bit O’ Spice to your Salmon!! To top it off, I’ve taken tropical Lime and Pineapple, married them to cool Avocado and sweet Shallots, tossing in Jalapeño just for kicks and created a Salsa that is to die for!!
Pick up the following ingredients, set your Pandora to an Island station and pour yourself a Coconut Water. The meal you’re about to make will transport you to a tropical state of mind. Enjoy the bliss!!
