Grilled Salmon with Avocado Sauce

Salmon has been one of my favorite fishes for a long time. This fresh water fish is easy to prepare and has a delightful soft texture.

To top it all up, salmon is high in Omega-3 fatty oils, and it’s considered one of the best choices for those who are trying to “like” fish in their diet. Why? Because Salmon has a mild flavor and will not scare the newbies away:)


This recipe has simple ingredients that you will be able to find all year around. I like to keep the salmon simple, seasoned with salt and pepper, and let the imagination flow in the sauce!

    • Absolutely Jess! Lemon will be a great choice for this sauce. I often use lime in my recipes because lime is consider the “Brazilian lemon”. Thanks for visiting the site!

  1. I just love the idea of this sauce!! Also adore salmon. We have access to fabulous salmon in the UK, and I tend to eat it weekly.
