Meghan Yager | Cake 'n Knife

Grilled Salmon with Corn Avocado Salsa brings a bunch of spice to the party, without any guilt! The bright and flavorful salsa on top of a heartily spiced fish is a simple way to make the most of fresh summer flavors. This is going to become your new favorite summertime dinner.

I am so obsessed with salmon right now.

Maybe it’s because it’s my favorite fish out of all the fish in the sea (well, that’s not counting sushi so don’t quote me on that, ok?). Perhaps it’s because we are trying to be healthy and we’ve been eating too much chicken lately.

Regardless, that flaky flavorful seafood is one that I can never get enough of.

This is one of my favorite ways to devour salmon right now is hot off the grill.

First you start with a spice rub that really highlights that savoriness of the salmon, without completely overpowering it.

It’s slightly smoky, with a nice hit of spice and a touch of sweetness. The result is absolutely divine, especially when you get those flavors of the grill.

The charred corn avocado salsa comes in to cool everything off, with a burst of bright and fresh flavors. My husband is obsessed with all things corn right now, especially when it is charred.

That’s why I added it as an element to this salsa!

It pairs so well with the tomatoes and avocado, giving a cooling element to counter the heat in the rub on the salmon.

The whole meal comes together in just 20 minutes, making it a weeknight healthy meal that you’ll soon want to eat every single week.

I highly recommend making this with a whole filet, but you can also use individual filets. You may need to cut the cooking time down, so check it halfway through and keep an eye on it!
