Salmon  is one of those foods that always looks beautiful, but sadly I have never eaten it because I am allergic.  My family loves fish and despite my allergies when I consume it I try to come up with yummy fish recipes so my kids can benefit from the omega 3’s and other nutrients.  This recipe is simple to make and I have been told is quite delicious.  I am a bit obsessed with toppings and sauces as I never feel like a meal is complete unless there is a garnish or drizzle of some sort so I made a guacamole out of some fresh mangoes and avocados to go with it.  Such an easy dish to make and when served with a vegetable side dish and simple brown rice it is a complete and healthy meal!

  1. Salmon: Place the salmon fillets in a shallow pyrex dish or a large ziploc bag. Mix all of the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Remove 1/2 cup of marinade and pour the rest over the salmon to marinate. Marinate for 1 to 4 hours, preferably 4. Rotate the salmon in the marinade a few times to ensure even flavor. While the salmon is marinating, make the guacamole.
  2. Guacamole: Is a medium sized bowl lightly mash the avocados with a fork, fold in the rest of the ingredients and refrigerate until salmon is ready. If you put the pit from the avocado in with the guacamole it will keep it from browning for up to 2 days.
  3. I prefer to cook salmon on my George Forman grill because its easier to clean, but you can heat up either your George Forman or a gas grill to medium-high heat.
  4. In a small sauce pan heat the 1/2 cup of marinade you reserved earlier until it boils, reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until it becomes syrupy.
  5. Remove the salmon pieces from the marinade and season with salt and pepper. Brush the grill with vegetable oil and grill for about 3-5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your salmon. The fish is done when its opaque throughout and flakes easily with a fork. If you don't care about grill marks for presentation you can also cook the salmon on a piece of foil sprayed with cooking spray for easier cleanup.
  6. To serve brush with cooked marinade and top with a heaping spoonful of guacamole.
