I developed this Grilled Salmon Recipe when a friend asked that I help her find a delicious Whole30 recipe to share with her healthy eating group on FB. After doing some research, I found out that Whole30 is a program of stripping certain foods like sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes from your diet completely for 30 days. I have heard a lot of people mentioning this lifestyle change lately. It’s a way to detox your system of all the yucky stuff and restart a healthy lifestyle.
You don’t have to participate in Whole30 to LOVE this Grilled Salmon Recipe. I have never done a full month of Whole30 and this is the BEST Salmon Recipe I have ever tasted. It’s been a favorite in our house since I first posted this recipe in 2014.

Tips for making Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa:
We prepare this Grilled Salmon recipe on an indoor grill during the winter, and an outdoor grill during the Summer. It’s made in under 15 minutes! We love it year round.
Before grilling, the Salmon gets a rub of some delicious spices. The creamy avocado salsa (made with avocados, red onion, lime juice, and cilantro) is the perfect compliment to the spices, keeping things fresh and delicious. Every time we make this Grilled Salmon Recipe we add a little extra to the grill for our Cat, Dill. He’s just as excited as we are!

What is the Whole30 Diet?
Whole30 is a diet that involves removing all sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, and dairy from your diet. You can find out more about Whole 30 on their website. It’s not necessary to be on the Whole30 diet to enjoy this amazing Grilled Salmon Recipe.
How long does it take Salmon to cook on the grill?
For Salmon Filets that are approximately 1 inch thick, it should take about 8 minutes over a 500F grill, or 5-7 minutes on an indoor grill such as a Foreman Grill that heats both sides of the fish. Super quick and easy!
How do you know when the Grilled Salmon is done cooking?
Grilled Salmon is done cooking when the internal temperature reads 145F. You’ll notice the fat beginning to leave the fish (it will look like some white on the sides of the salmon) right before it’s done. Salmon is easy to over cook, so watch yours carefully!
