A plate of summertime
King with Strawberry Avocado Salsa
Serves: 4 | Difficulty:
4, 8-ounce king salmon fillets
1 garlic clove, minced
Juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
1 pint strawberries, hulled and diced
1 avocado, diced
1 shallot minced
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
Juice of ½ lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
For the salmon, stir lime juice and garlic together. Pour over salmon and marinate for 20 minutes.
Dry salmon with a paper towel, and season with salt and pepper.
Heat large nonstick skillet to medium-high and add oil. Add salmon, flesh-side down, and sear until golden brown and cooked about half way through (about 4-5 minutes). Gently flip and sear until skin is crisp and golden and fish starts to flake (about another 4-5 minutes). Set aside to rest.
For the salsa, combine strawberries, avocado, shallot, cilantro, lime juice, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve king smothered in summertime salsa!
