Salmon with Mediterranean salsa

Salmon with Mediterranean salsa

This salmon with Mediterranean salsa is a simple recipe that packs a ton of fresh flavor. All the components of a Greek salad, combined with nutrient-packed avocado, and served on top of the healthiest fish you can eat. Everything the doctor ordered!

Yes, there is a bit of chopping involved, but it shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes or so.

Tips

Salmon fillets can be cooked any way you want: pan seared, grilled, or in the oven. My very favorite method is grilled on a cedar plank, but that requires a bit of planning to pre-soak the plank – and good weather to take out the grill. Oven roasted is my go-to foolproof method.

Tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, kalamata olives, parsley, oregano, feta cheese, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil are all the basic components of a traditional Greek salad. You could substitute, add or omit some, for example add bell pepper or omit feta cheese. The ingredients and proportions below result in the best possible taste in my opinion, but taste is personal!

We’ve added an avocado to the mix not only for its health benefits but also for the creaminess it provides.

You can serve this salsa with chicken as well, or on its own as a salad!

I like to serve this Salmon with Mediterranean Salsa with a whole grain like this gorgeous black rice or farro and a simple vegetable like spaghetti squash, zucchini or yellow squash, or cooked greens like spinach.
