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 recipe is loaded with heart healthy ingredients!  The fresh cilantro and lime take it up a notch too. Adding salsa on top of 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.

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!

Pair with some roasted veggies and make it a complete meal. I just used what we had leftover from the week! It’s a great way to make sure your veggie produce gets used. Drizzle some olive oil, sprinkle on some spices and voila.
