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!

Hi! Wondering if u have nutrition facts for your amazing recipes?!
    becky gall hardin
    I don't yet!! I really need to look into how to add that. i'm looking for a good plugin to share the nutrition info. thanks for the suggestion!!
      Paula B102
      I second that request! My sweetie ALWAYS asks for that info!
Megan Saenz
I mad this last night for dinner and it was amazing! I found the recipe on Pinteres, but I will be checking out your website for other delicious recipes :)
Courtney Cotton
It's great that you label things as "healthy" - but what does that mean? what is the caloric content, fiber, fat, carbs, protein? It would be nice if that was included if you're going to label something as "healthy". Thanks!
    Emily
    Courtney, salmon and avocado are both full of healthy fats and are recommended to eat. Spices and onions are also healthy and olive oil is a healthy oil with monounsaturated fat. There is nothing unhealthy about this recipe and is completely guilt free.
      Becky Hardin
      Thank you for this thoughtful comment! I actually didn't see the original comment from Courtney; Courtney I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner. But Emily your response speaks better than I could have, thank you! I don't yet have a nutritional tracker on my posts, although that's something I would like to add in the future. Thank you both for visiting the site!

      My daughter discovered your recipe on Pinterest & has asked me to make for her "21st birthday/going away" get together we're having tomorrow. (She's joining her husband in TX who's newly entered into the Air Force.) Just wanted to let you know out of all the many, many, MANY recipe ideas she looked over, your salmon was "hands down" the one she wanted! Way to go for coming up with something so phenomenal using the best of ingredients! I'm sure it will turn out terrific! I'll definitely be bookmarking your blog site for future reference. Thanks so much!

        aw!!! This totally made my day!! Thanks so much for letting me know, that is so sweet. Hope your daughter has a fabulous birthday!

          How long do i grill it for?
          becky gall hardin
          Hi Calvin- I grilled for about 5 minutes, but each grill will be different. Keep a close eye on it because Salmon is done very quick! Hope you enjoy :)
          Calvin
          Hi I was just wondering, what alternate way can we make it? I dont have a grilled and I was wondering if i used a cooking pan and put it on a stove if it will still work? And also if i had to end up baking the salmon would it still taste the same? And what temperature I would have to pre heat on?
          becky gall hardin
          Hey Calvin! You could cook it either of those ways. It would still taste great. I cooked this salmon on a Foreman Grill too, if you have that. Here are a couple helpful links for baking or pan-searing. Both would be really easy and tasty! Prepare the spice rub the same way, just use these links as a cooking guide. Hope you love the recipe! :) Baking: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/oven-baked-salmon-recipe.html Pan Fried/seared: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pan-seared-salmon-i/

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I made it this evening and it was so simple and flavorful it will likely become a regular dish at our house. We served it up with a brown and wild rice blend and grilled yellow squash, zucchini, asparagus and portobello mushrooms.
    The Cookie Rookie
    That sounds amazing!! I love portobello mushrooms, the perfect side for this dish! I'm so glad you loved it, made my day to hear from you!
