  • 8 Pieces of fresh or thawed salmon

  • 2 TBS olive oil

  • 2 cups of brown rice

Dry Rub

  • 2 TBS olive oil

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 2 tsp paprika

  • 2 tsp onion

  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp chili powder

  • 2 tsp pepper


  • 2 avocados

  • 1 red onion

  • 2 limes (squeezed)

  • 1 TBS cilantro

  • Salt to taste


Step 1:

Preheat over to 400. Start making rice according to box directions. Pat salmon dry with a paper towel. Spray with cooking spray or put a little bit of olive oil on each side of the salmon. Place in 9x13 dish. I use two of them. I don't allow the salmon to touch each other so it cooks evenly.

Step 2:

In a very small bowl, add dry rub ingredients and stir well. Spread dry rub on each side of the salmon (for small children, I put olive oil on each side and sprinkle with garlic salt. Sometimes the dry rub can get spicy). Place in oven and cook for 6 minutes. Take out after six minutes and flip fish over. Cook for another six minutes. (Salmon should be cooked to reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees).

Step 3:

While the salmon is cooking, chop red onion into small pieces. Pour 2 TBS of olive oil in a large skillet. Add onion and saute until desired consistency. Set aside to cool.

Step 4:

Chop avocado into small bites. Squeeze limes (or use lime juice, approximately 2 tsp). Sprinkle with salt. Add cooled red onion to salsa mix. Stir well. Serve salmon on bed of rice and top with avocado salsa!
