Whole 30 Avocado Salmon
Tender, flaky salmon flavored with cilantro and line and topped with an easy avocado sauce. This baked salmon recipe is quick and delicious...and it's my kids favorite salmon recipe right now :)
Ingredients:
Salmon
     - 2 salmon portions (6oz)
     - 1 Tbsp olive oil
     - 1 Clove garlic, chopped
     - Juice from half a small lime, about 1/2 Tbsp
     - 1/2 Tsp coarse salt
     - 1/4 Tsp freshly ground black pepper
     
Avocado Salsa
     - 1 Ripe avocado, diced
     - Ju ice from half a small lime, about 1/2 Tbsp
     - 2-3 Dashes hot sauce (we used Barnacle kelp salsa)
     - 1 Clove garlic, chopped
     - 1/4 Tsp Coarse salt
     - 1/8 Tsp Freshly ground pepper
     - 1 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
     - 1/2 Cup cherry tomatoes, halved (or 1/2 medium tomato)
Instructions: 
 Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the salmon fillets in the center of the sheet. 
In a small bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Drizzle and brush generously over the salmon. Let the salmon stand at room temperature for 10 min while the oven finishes preheating. 
Bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145 F, about 16 to 20 minutes. 
While the salmon bakes, prepare the avocado salsa. In a large bowl, stir together the avocado, lime juice, hot sauce, garlic, salt, peper, and cilantro. With a fork, gently crush pieces of the avocado and stir. Stir in the tomatoes. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. 
Transfer the salmon to serving plates. Serve hot, topped with avocado salsa and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.
