GRILLED SALMON with AVOCADO SALSA
Tonight we felt like eating something that felt clean, something easy. This was one of those winning combination meals when with a little planning I could put this delicious dinner together using only one burner (boat galley in mind of course). The potatoes went on first (recipe for my stove top method here)
Then, while the potatoes cooked, I prepared the rub and massaged the salmon to be set aside for about for 20 minutes.
Then I chop chopped the salsa ingredients so they could blend with all that fresh lime juice.
By then the potatoes were done and set aside and grill pan heated. The salmon took no more than five minutes and voilà!
Ready to dine. Easy, clean, healthy eating at its best.
