Salmon with Avocado and Orange Salsa

The combination of orange and avocado goes well with a tasty fish like salmon. Be sure to use only ripe avocados. If you have to store a cut avocado in the fridge, leave the pit in the avocado so it doesn’t brown as quickly.

1. In a small bowl, combine the orange, avocado, orange juice concentrate, red pepper, red onion, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and cilantro. Stir to combine and set aside.

2. Preheat a barbecue to medium-high heat or lightly coat a nonstick grill pan with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper. Cook the salmon for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness or until the fish just flakes when tested with a fork.

3. Spoon the salsa over the salmon before serving.
