TIPS FOR MAKING GRILLED SALMON WITH AVOCADO SALSA:
We prepare this Grilled Salmon recipe on an indoor grill during the winter, and an outdoor grill during the Summer. It’s made in under 15 minutes! We love it year round.
Before grilling, the Salmon gets a rub of some delicious spices. The creamy avocado salsa (made with avocados, red onion, lime juice, and cilantro) is the perfect compliment to the spices, keeping things fresh and delicious.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE SALMON TO COOK ON THE GRILL?
For Salmon Filets that are approximately 1 inch thick, it should take about 8 minutes over a 500F grill, or 5-7 minutes on an indoor grill such as a Foreman Grill that heats both sides of the fish. Super quick and easy!
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN THE GRILLED SALMON IS DONE COOKING?
Grilled Salmon is done cooking when the internal temperature reads 145F. You’ll notice the fat beginning to leave the fish (it will look like some white on the sides of the salmon) right before it’s done. Salmon is easy to over cook, so watch yours carefully!
