July 27, 2015 Updated: July 27, 2015

Now that it’s finally warm out, I love to grill. It’s a great way to add extra flavor to your favorite fish, poultry or meat. I pick up wild fish and fresh corn from my local farmers market. Grilling a delicious salmon is easy and the perfect summer-time meal when paired with avocado salsa!

Grilling the Salmon


  • 2 lbs Wild Salmon, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  1. In a small bowl mix the spices together – salt, coriander, onion, paprika, garlic, and black pepper.
  2. Check salmon filets for pinbones, then pat dry and rub spice mixture on each salmon filet
  3. Place in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  4. Pre-heat the grill to medium high
  5. Grill salmon to desired tenderness (a one-inch piece will cook in 6-10 minutes)

Avocado Salsa


  • 2 large ears, fresh yellow corn (preferably from your farmer’s market )
  • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted and cubed
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • Pinch of cayenne (if desired)
  • Refrigerate until salmon is ready to serve

Refrigerate until salmon is ready to serve.

Combine tomato, onion, corn, lime juice, garlic, olive oil, and salt to a bowl. Stir in avocado and cilantro, add cayenne if desired.

Add to the top of the salmon once grilled, serve and enjoy!
