Grilled King Salmon with Avocado Salsa

May 13, 2015

We can't get enough of our Wild King Salmon.  Troll-caught in the North Pacific these Kings are high in oil content, rich in flavor and prime for eating. Add some avocado and consider it one of the healthiest meals on the planet.  We love this great recipe sourced from the Cookie Rookie.  There is nothing that we love more than recipes that taste so delicious that you don't even realize how healthy they are. This is one of those recipes! The combination of the flavorful rub and fresh ingredients really enhanced the salmon and made for a fantastic dinner.
