Blackened Salmon Topped With Strawberry Avocado Salsa

From fridge to table in under 20 minutes, this dish is healthy, colorful and full of flavor.

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
  • 1/2 small red onion , diced
  • 2 jalapeño chile peppers , seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 large avocado , peeled, seeded and diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  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. When pan is hot, add the salmon, flesh side down and cook for 3-5 minutes with lid on the pan. Flip the salmon and cook fish all the way through (uncovered), about 5 more minutes. You can check the middle of the salmon with a fork to make sure it is heated and beginning to flake.
  3. While salmon is cooking, prepare strawberry avocado salsa by simply mixing all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Plate salmon (skin removed) and top with plenty of strawberry avocado salsa. Enjoy with Butter!
