Simple Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa Recipe

There is nothing lighter for lunch than fish, and when you top it off with fresh avocado salsa – yum! It is hard to say anything bad about a healthy fish dish, if not downright impossible not to praise it for all the health benefits it has to offer.

Simple Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Whether you are eating a simple smoked salmon or a more captivating Maple Salmon with Chives and Dill, you know that your body will thank you for indulging in robust nourishment.

A diet that takes nutrient density into consideration is an intelligent one, so consider yourself smart for choosing to delicately grill your salmon. Fish is a high-quality protein with elevated levels of selenium and B12 – if you lack these essential nutrients, you are at risk for anemia, something that all of us want to avoid.

Since a Paleo diet does not consider wheat, or any grains for that matter, an adequate source of important selenium, you are going to have to find it in other ways. Selenium is naturally available in limited amounts in Brazil nuts, sunflowers seeds, pastured organic eggs, and garlic.

Serve this lightly grilled salmon with a Roasted Red Pepper Deviled Egg, or two, on the side, and you are guaranteed to have the energy needed to conquer the day, whether it is a business meeting, a tight deadline, or taking care of the kids at home.
