Salmon with Pineapple-Avocado Salsa | Recipe

Salmon is a tasty way to get some good fats, and this riff on salsa takes the dish to another level. Spicy jalapeños and sweet pineapple meet creamy, heart-healthy avocado to make this salsa anything but ordinary.

Ingredients:

For the salsa

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 small ripe avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple, plus any leftover juices
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup red onion, minced
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the salmon

  • 12 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2 skin-on wild salmon fillets, about 160g each and roughly even thickness
  • Lime wedge, optional garnish
  • Cilantro, optional garnish

Directions

For the salsa

Mix ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside to let the flavors develop. Yields about 2 cups salsa.

For the salmon

Melt the coconut oil in a medium frying pan and swirl to coat. Place the salmon in the pan, skin side down. Cook 4 minutes for every 1/2-inch of thickness. When most of the flesh below the top of the fish is pale, carefully flip each fillet and cook an additional 1–2 minutes.

Serve the salmon atop a bed of rice, if desired, and squeeze lime juice over the top. Arrange a half of the salsa on the fish, then garnish with additional lime wedges and cilantro.

Note: Grilling the salmon works just as well.
