Ingredients

FOR THE SALMON:

  • 1 pound wild caught salmon filets
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 orange juiced and zested
  • 1 lime juiced and zested
  • 2 tablespoons honey

FOR THE SALSA

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno minced (remove ribs and seeds for less heat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt more or less to taste
  • 1/2 lime juiced

Instructions

MAKE THE SALMON:

  • Preheat your ovens broiler and lightly spray a rimmed sheet pan. I used olive oil.
  • In a shallow dish combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, orange and lime zest and honey. Whisk until combined and place the salmon {skin-side up} and set it off to the side for a moment. {Make the salsa}
  • Place the salmon skin-side up onto the prepared pan and place it close to the broiler. Broil for 4-5 minutes, remove and carefully flip the salmon so the skin side is down. (If doing this on a grill, reserve 4 tablespoons of the marinade before adding the salmon.)
  • Spoon a tablespoon of the marinade over top of each salmon fillet and return the salmon to the oven and under the broiler for 6-8 more minutes or until the salmon flakes easily.
  • Serve with a spoonful or two of the strawberry avocado salsa.

MAKE THE SALSA:

  • Rinse and hull a pint of fresh strawberries. Dice the strawberries and add them to a medium size bowl.
  • Mince up about 2-3 tablespoons of red onion and half {if large} a jalapeno.
  • Halve the avocado, remove the pit and discard and make small vertical and horizontal cuts into both of the avocado halves. Use a spoon to scoop and remove the avocado and place it into the bowl.
  • Season with kosher salt and then squeeze in the juice from half a lime.
  • Carefully toss and serve.

Notes

Serve the salmon atop of cooked couscous, quinoa or cauliflower rice.
