Avocado salsa salmon, just sounds good, doesn’t it?!

I know avocado is extra but adding it to salsa and salmon is worth it. This heart healthy recipe is loaded with nutrient dense ingredients!  The fresh cilantro and lime take it up a notch. Adding salsa topping on fish is one of my favorite ways to flavor it. Plus, if there’s leftover salsa I use it to dip my veggie sticks in and make other healthy recipes with salsa.

Salmon is a great source of omega 3s and Vitamin D which most of us could use more of. I may be biased but adding salmon in regularly is not only delicious but nutritious. Give it a try. This recipe was a hit and super easy!

Pairing fresh Alaskan salmon with some roasted veggies is a go to complete meal at my house. However, if frozen vs. fresh salmon is more realistic and available, go for that! I used leftover veggies from the week in this recipe. It’s a great way to make sure your produce gets used. Drizzle some olive oil, sprinkle on some spices and voila. Roasted sheet pan vegetables are SO GOOD.
