Wild Caught Salmon With Avocado Salsa

Friday, July 27, 2012

All I can say is YUM!  Pinterest has been the best place to find new recipes.  I may as well cancel my Cooking Light subscription because honestly, when I want to try a new recipe, I look on Pinterest.  Rick and I really enjoy cooking together and find ourselves alone many evenings in the summer now that the boys are older and more social.  Last night we tried the grilled salmon with avocado salsa recipe that I pinned a while back.  We were in luck because our local Harris Teeter had wild caught salmon on special.  If you have never tried the wild caught salmon - the difference is amazeballs (Julia, I stole your saying).

We prepared the salmon according to this recipe and made a few modifications of our own.  One change was that we added fresh, raw corn cut off the cob.   The other difference is that I completely forgot to add cilantro which would have sent this dish over the edge.  I was bummed too because we have it growing in the garden.  Next time.  We had polenta as a side which we both agreed went perfectly with the salmon.

And, just in case you are into food and wine pairings, we highly recommend Ménage á Trois, Rose to go with this dish. 

That's all for now party people.  Have a great weekend!


  1. Looks delish! I think I would eat anything with avocado and cilantro! Enjoy the weekend!

  2. I'm so glad to have a new salmon recipe! This one looks incredible! Thanks for sharing it! I just love Pinterest!

  3. Just got back from Whole Food where they have wild-caught Coho on huge special-- run-- they are almost out! I think I might have to make this tonight-- it looks amazing. Salmon is my absolute fave:-)

  4. Yum! Whole Foods has wild-caught salmon on sale today. I think we'll try grilling it on top of orange slices, as seen in Everyday Food magazine, my go-to for 99% of what I cook. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Even your food pictures are pretty. I have pinned a bunch of recipes in the hope that I might actually cook something. I still make corn, tomatoes, and onion quite regularly. That is cooking to me :)
    Wish I was your neighbor cause I would bring the wine.....

  6. I just found your blog and love it! Following you on GFC and look forward to reading more! This meal looks amazing! :)

  7. We love salmon too but I don't think ours has been the wild kind; will have to try it!

  8. Mmmm that looks so delicious, Rene. Thanks for sharing, I will definitely be trying this soon! {And I love wine recommendations too :)}
    Happy weekend!

  9. I'll have to pin this one - it looks delicious. And I'm slowly getting better about cooking with fish. A friend was just telling me the difference between the wild caught salmon so that's also in my notes. Thanks for the recommendation!

  10. I am salivating at my desk Rene! Just found your lovely blog whilst actually I should be working:), I have salmon on home delivery this evening!, thank you for an inspired idea...looking forward to reading more of your blog
