It’s easy to get into a rut when you are changing your food habits.  I have found that keeping things fresh and flavorful will keep you on track and satisfied!

One of my favorite “splurge” meals is this Citrus Salmon recipe with avocado. This dish is perfect to make when you are looking to make a “special” dish. 

Citrus Salmon does not require many ingredients, spices you will never use again.  It’s great as leftovers as well!

How to make this Citrus Avocado Salmon Recipe

Marinade: 
~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  your Citrus Salmon recipe with salsa on top of your fish.
