Grilled Salmon with Avocado
The first of the recipes includes not only the very nutritious and healthy salmon, but alsoanother ingredient which is good to include in your meals – avocado.
4 salmon fillets
2 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of paprika
¼ red onion

The first step includes cooking the salmon. First you need to prepare marinate for it. Get a bowl and pour in it 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add the paprika and the black pepper, and then add a teaspoon of salt. Mix the ingredients well together.
Once the salt has melted get the salmon fillets and apple this marinate on each one of them equally. You can use the same bowl for the purpose. Just put the fillets in it and roll them well in it.
After that put the bowl with the salmon in the fridge for about half an hour. This way you will make sure the salmon has absorbed as much as possible from the paprika marinate.
Once the salmon is ready, it is time to grill it. Grill it at high heat for about two minutes on each side. When you are ready with this, put the fillets aside while you are making the avocado salsa.
Now get the avocados and cut them in two halves diagonally. Remove the stones, and scrape the inner part of the avocado using a spoon. Since the avocado flesh is soft you will have no difficulties doing this. Then simply cut the avocados into cubes. Put them in a bowl.
Now get the ¼ red onion and chop it. After that add it into the bowl with the avocados. Now cut the lime into two equal pieces and squeeze the juice into the bowl over the other ingredients. Finally, add the extra 1 ½ teaspoon of salt and the last tablespoon of olive oil into the bowl and mix all the ingredients well.
Serve the salmon fillets with avocado salsa on top of them. You can also sprinkle some chopped fresh basil on top if you like. And your meal is ready!
