Ingredients
For the salmon:
  • 20-28 ounces about 2 pounds fresh salmon , about 4 fillets (wild-caught is best)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
For the strawberry avocado salsa:
  • 8 ounces strawberries , diced

Instructions
  1. Mix all seasonings, for the salmon, in a small bowl. Press seasoning into salmon and gently rub the seasoning to completely coat the salmon
  2. In a nonstick pan, add about ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or spray with cooking spray and heat to medium-high.
