My favorite things to post are easy and delicious recipes. this one is easy, delicious AND healthy. It’s so flavorful that you’ll really have to wonder how it could be sooo good for you. Whole30 Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa might just be my favorite recipe on my entire site.

My friend Bre mentioned on Instagram that she would like me to find a Whole30 approved recipe to post. She is currently participating in and leading a Whole 30 group for January. 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.

You can find out more by clicking HERE.  I’m not currently participating in the program (could you tell from the apple pie cupcakes I posted last weekend?), but I’m always looking for healthy and delicious recipes. When recipes taste like this one, it is easy to live a healthy lifestyle. It’s all about flavor.

Another thing that’s easy to love about this recipe is how simple and quick it is to prepare. We grilled the salmon on our panini grill (its currently 20 degrees in Saint Louis…so we weren’t about to grill outside!) Quick and simple.

The salmon gets a rub of some delicious spices, and the avocado salsa is quick and sooo flavorful. Fresh and delicious. We even grilled up a little salmon for Mr. dill. You can see it in the upper corner of the picture. He was more than thrilled!

      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!

      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 :)

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!!!

    Wow!! Thank you for the amazing comment! So happy to hear you loved it!! Thanks for checking it out!

      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
        Becky Hardin
        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 :)
