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 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!

      I made your salmon and avacodo salsa tonight and I have to say that this was by far the BEST salmon EVER! The spice combination was perfect and the avacodo salsa on top was perfect! Thank you so much for sharing!
      Rose
      I am making this now with a first run Alaskan salmon. I feel so brave trying this with such a special fish but I can only assume that it's amazing. I have already taste tested the avocado salsa and it is superb. It's really citrusy which I think will go well with the fish. Thank you!
        Becky Hardin
        That sounds so delicious, I'm jealous of you getting such good fish where you live! Hope you LOVE the recipe :)
    Hillary Crenshaw

This was such a beautiful/awesome/yummy recipe! It will be one that I will make again. It was just amazing how well the individual tastes went together so well. The mixture that you put on top of the salmon was out of this world! Thanks so much for sharing!!!
    becky gall hardin
    Wow!! Thank you for the amazing comment! So happy to hear you loved it!! Thanks for checking it out!
      chrystal
      do you think I could bake the salmon in the oven and it would be just as good? anyone have an idea of temp and time for oven?
        Susie G
        Hey Chrystal, Susie here (Becky's mom). I have roasted salmon several times in the oven and it is delicious. Here are the directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray. Prepare the salmon per the recipe directions then place the salmon filets, skin down, on the cooking tray. Cook 12-18 minutes (see note*). Remove from the oven and cover with aluminum foil until ready to plate. *Perfectly cooked salmon separates into big, soft flakes and has some pink in the center. It will continue to cook a little more out of the oven so remove it at this point. I'm sure it will turn out great. Please let us know if you have further questions.

      I ran across your Salmon with avocado salsa recipe and as I read it I wanted to rush to the store and serve it tonight. So thank you for creating and posting it. Your pictures are fabulous. Question: does it work as well under the broiler? Thank you, maureen

        I've never tried it that way, but I'm confident it would work just as well. I hope you love the recipe!!! Thanks so much for the sweet comments and for stopping by!

Great recipe. I have been flour and sugar free for three years. At 64 I feel better that I did at 55.

Did you leave the skin on the salmon or was there no skin? I can't wait to make this dish it looks absolutely AMAZING!!!!
    becky gall hardin
    we used a knife to cut the skin off before grilling. I'm sure you can also buy it skinless. it was pretty easy to peel off, so that's what I would recommend. please let me know if you try it! hope you love it :)
