5 stars from 1 rating of Seared Salmon with Avocado and Cucumber Salad


  • 4 salmon fillets, 5 ounces each

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon dill, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

I'd like to suggest one of the tastiest salmon recipes: seared salmon over avocado and cucumber salad. Salmon has been a favorite seafood for a long time and there are lots of different recipes, though one of the most favorite combinations is salmon over avocado.

      Yes, unfortunately it is quite expensive almost everywhere...

      For me, salmon and salad are THE perfect lunch combo: delicious, healthy, quick and easy. I wish I could have it more often but salmon in Mexico is quite an expensive fish, as it is always imported.
