This is the third grilled salmon recipe in a row… ’tis the season for grilling, I suppose. While the concept is very similar to recipe #13 (simple grilled salmon, seasoned only with salt and pepper, and topped by a green sauce), the flavours are completely different. I don’t know how this salmon challenge keeps uncovering dishes that are so unique yet so delicious, but we declare this another winner.
Grilled Salmon with Avocado Sauce
from Foodie Blogger Ana Helena Campbell
1/2 juice of lime, as well as zest
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp green onions
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (or parsley, if you prefer)
2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 large salmon filets, sliced into single portions
salt and pepper
Sauce: Zest lime and set aside. In a food processor add lime juice, avocado, garlic, green onions, cilantro, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper. Process all the ingredients until well combined. Add the olive oil slowly, and process all the ingredients until smooth. Mix in zest and set aside for a few minutes until ready to serve.
Salmon: Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Using a hot oil coated grill or grill pan, add the salmon for 3-4 minutes each side (depending on the thickness of the filet), or until fish becomes opaque and flakes easily. Serve immediately with avocado sauce.
