  • 2 pounds salmon - I had just one big piece that was 2 pounds but you can get multiple pieces that equal up to the 2 pounds
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt + a pinch
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ small onion (sliced or diced whichever way you want to cut it
  • Juice from 1 lime


  • First prep your salmon and make sure it is clean. Then in a bowl mix 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon chili powder. Mix them well.
  • Then rub the mixture on top of your salmon. You can grill it right away or you can put it in the fridge for a few minutes to let the seasonings soak into it.
  • Then make your salsa.
  • Dice your avocado, slice your onion and add both to a small bowl. Then squeeze the juice from the lime into the bowl, add a pinch of salt and then mix well. Refrigerate until your salmon is done being cooked.
  • Grill your salmon until cooked (it will flake easy with a fork when it is fully cooked)
  • Once your salmon is cooked, cut into serving pieces and then top with the avocado onion Salsa.
