This is another recipe from Stacy Snacks Online. I adore her recipes. Some are simple. Others a bit more work. But all are spectacular. This pairs grilled salmon with a lovely avocado salad. Fantastic, healthy and light. 

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa 
Adapted From Adapted from Stacey Snacks Online

4 salmon filets, about 1/2 lb. per person, skin removed (ask the fish monger to do this for you)

1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp onion powder (I did not use this, cause I don't have it!)
1 tsp black pepper

Place the salmon filets in a glass dish and add the salt, spices and oil. You can let this sit in the fridge, covered all day until ready to sear.
Make the avocado salad:
1 avocado, peeled, seeded and sliced
a couple of cherry tomatoes, quartered (for some color)
1/4 small red onion, sliced
2 mild hot peppers, seeded and deveined, diced or sliced (optional)
juice from 2 limes (or lemons)
3 tbs olive oil
2 tbs finely chopped cilantro
kosher salt

Lightly mix the avocado slices in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and season with kosher salt. Refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving.

In a heavy grill pan, sear the fish for 3 minutes on each side until it is done to your liking. I used wild Coho salmon, so it was done very quickly because it is denser and drier than Atlantic salmon. Plate the salmon and spoon the avocado mixture underneath and over the fish. Garnish with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
