How to make this Citrus Avocado Salmon Recipe
~2 tbsp olive oil
~2 tsbp freshly squeezed orange juice
~Salt & pepper
-Marinate 1 to 1 1/2 lbs of salmon for a minimum of 1 hour.
As your salmon is marinating, make your salsa.
To make your salsa, mix together:
~1 diced orange
~1 diced ripened avocado
~2 tbsp diced, fresh cilantro
~2 tbsp lime juice
~3 tbsp fresh orange juice
~Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
Cook your salmon:
~My favorite pan to use is the Stone Earth Pan by Ozeri. I use it to cook everything.
~Pour the marinade in your pan and cook your salmon in the marinade for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat on each side.
~You want your fish to be flaky.
This dish would be delicious over some rice, but I opt to serve it over field greens and romaine lettuce. I use the juice from the salsa and marinade as a “dressing”.
Serve with salsa on top of your fish.
