Grilled Wild Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa

Print

Summertime means grill time to me and wild salmon is one of my favorite foods to grill and eat! Combine that with a fresh and delicious salsa, and you have a perfect quick summer supper. If salmon isn’t your thing, this salsa is also delicious on halibut, snapper or grilled chicken breasts.

Further Food Commentary:

Salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids and protein that will help to keep you satisfied on any type of diet. I recommend purchasing wild salmon when/if possible to avoid chemicals, dyes and poor farming practices. Salsa is another great way to add tons of flavor to foods (even veggies) without lots of calories and fat! The rawness of this food ensures you don’t lose nutrients from cooking and this salsa is loaded with seasonal veggies which means the flavors will taste the best NOW! Don’t just limit this salsa to add to protein, serve it with fresh veggies at any BBQ and you’ll find no one will miss the cheese or spinach dip!
