Salmon with Ginger-Avocado Salsa

This is a nice healthy treat  that will also do for a Ladies Luncheon…..


  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 stalk of celery, finely chopped, threads removed
  • 1/4 cup pickled ginger, drained and chopped
  • 1 ripe, firm avocado, diced
  • 1 English cucumber, seeds removed and chopped (no big chunks)
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 tsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place rack in the upper third of the oven. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil. Mix all the ingredients except the salmon and oil together and set aside in the fridge to keep cold.

Brush the salmon with the oil and place skin side down on the cookie sheet. It should take abut 8 minutes to be cooked perfectly. To test, hold a fork in the thickest part of the fillet for about 10 seconds. If it comes out warm, it is done.

To plate….set a generous scoop of salsa on the plate and place the salmon fillet (minus the skin) on top.  Serve with fresh warm buns and  butter.  Decorate with a small sprig of fresh dill.
