I went to Fire Island last week with some of my closest high school friends and their kids. While sitting on the beach, I was talking to my friend Kim about recipe ideas (yes, food is always on my mind) and she mentioned this salmon dish she serves at a restaurant she works at. I loved everything about it, the next day I picked up some salmon and whipped this up! This turned out so good, I know you’ll agree!

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Bruschetta

Adding avocado to bruschetta is pretty genius, this would be just as good over toast. To make foolproof salmon on the grill, I use salmon with the skin on, and lay the salmon skin side down directly over the grill. Cover the grill and let it cook just like I would in the oven, no turning! Depending on the thickness, it should take about 10 minutes, then I remove it from the grill and discard the charred skin (it’s ok of the skin sticks to the grill, the point is the fish doesn’t break and protects the meat). And bonus, your house won’t smell like fish after. Hope you enjoy this recipe, if you don’t like salmon you can serve this over swordfish or even chicken if you prefer.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 20 mins
Yield: 4 Servings
Serving Size: 1 salmon filet

Ingredients

  • 4 wild salmon filets, 6 oz each
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • cooking spray

For the avocado bruschetta: (makes 2 1/4 cups)

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin oil
  • 1 tablespoon   balsamic vinegar
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 2 medium vine ripe tomatoes
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 4 ounces diced avocado, from 1 small

Instructions

  • Combine onion, olive oil, balsamic, 1/4 tsp kosher salt and pepper. Set aside a 5 minutes.
  • Chop tomatoes and place in a large bowl. Combine with garlic, basil, onion-balsamic combo and additional 1/8 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and let it sit at least 10 minutes.
  • Preheat a gas grill to medium-high. Oil the grates generously to prevent the fish from sticking.
  • Season salmon with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
  • Place skin-side-down on the grill. Close the lid and cook without turning for 8 to 10 minutes (depending on thickness), or until the salmon is just cooked through. The skin will char but will prevent the fish from drying out.
  • Remove and cover with foil; rest for 2 to 3 minutes while adding the avocado to the bruschetta.
  • Serve topped each with generous 1/2 cup avocado bruschetta.

  1. Another winner! I seasoned the salmon and air fried it because it was easier than grilling. The avocado bruschetta was delicious! I’ll definitely make this again.

  2. Excellent!  It’s winter and freezing out so I baked salmon at 375 for 22 minutes in a baking dish covered in foil which helps keep moist. Came out perfect.  The avacado bruschetta was excellent!! Can’t wait until it’s warmer so I can grill the salmon per the recipe 🙂

  3. This one made it into our regular rotation. I found it when I had to cut out dairy and it’s sooo good. My husband is allergic to onions so we sub shallots. Definitely a favorite of the whole family! 

  4. I bought salmon with no skin. Would you recommend grilling it on a griddle instead of right on the grill? Also, I can’t seem to get tomatoes in our area right now. How well would it work without the tomatoes or is there a good substitute?

  5. Wow was this delicious.  Will definitely be a do over.  Thank you Gina for being so creative.  I’ve tried so many new recipes on the meal plans.  I can’t wait to see what new recipes I try each week!

  6. This is an amazing recipe! I wouldn’t change It a bit ! I’ve served it many times and people just rave over it! This is the only way I serve Salmon. 

  7. Absolutely delicious.  I cooked in the oven.  Too hot here to stand outside with a grill.  Wonderfully refreshing dinner on a hot summer evening.  Served with rice.  This is a keeper for sure!
