Baked Salmon with Creamy Avocado Sauce

Posted in : MAIN DISHES on by : Admin

Tender pink salmon baked in foil, then drizzled with zesty and creamy avocado sauce!

Ingredients

  • 4 small salmon fillets OR 2 large fillets (skin removed)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Avocado Sauce

  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • milk or water
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a large piece of foil and grease lightly. 
  • Place fillets in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Squeeze the lemon half to drizzle juice over the salmon fillets. Season both sides with salt and pepper to taste . Wrap the edges of the foil over the salmon fillets – this helps to keep them moist! Bake for about 15-10 minutes or until flakey and tender.
  • While salmon is baking, prepare the sauce. Add avocado, cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt to a blender or food processor and pulse several times. Add milk or water 2-3 tablespoons at a time until mixture reaches a pourable consistency. Chill until ready to serve.
  • When salmon is fully cooked, drizzle with avocado sauce. If desired, serve salmon with additional chopped cilantro, fresh limes or lemons for squeezing, and rice.
