Baked Citrus Salmon With Salsa Guacamole

Spreading Good Tastes/baked salon with salsa guacamole

Big fish fan over here!…breakfast, lunch, dinner…all kinds…I love it all!
I really wish the rest of the family loved it too, but truth be told if you see them eating any seafood it’s probably because I am forcing it down their throats, and there is likely some kind of a bribe involved.

It’s really unfortunate, I say, because a recipe like this one is not only delicious, but healthy, easy and pretty fast to prepare.

The perfect weekday dinner in fact.

And that is why I keep trying.

Today I found a gorgeous piece of salmon that I just had to buy. It is definitely the type of fish I cook most often, and yes, mostly for myself, because it is so versatile and also delicious!

I had seen some recipes for salmon with avocado sauce on Pinterest recently, that really appealed to me and originally that’s what I was going to make.

Perhaps next time…today it was simply inspiration to make my usual citrus salmon and serve it topped with salsa guacamole style.

Fantastic turnout, so I had to share it with you.
My middle child, who is the only adventurous one when it comes to food thought it was delicious too.

So here you go, give it a try and let me know what you think.
I will be making this one again for sure. I think it’s perfect for summer.



*serves 4


1 large piece fresh salmon (around 2 lb is a good size)
1/2 cup water, or even better some white wine
1/2 lemon, sliced
1/2 lime, sliced
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste

For guacamole salsa:

1 large tomato, finely diced
1 large, ripe, avocado, finely diced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp finely diced red onion
1-2 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 large basil leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375F.
Rinse salmon fillet, and lay out on a baking dish.
Pour water/wine around it.
Top with lemon and lime slices, juices, salt and pepper.
Dot with butter.
Bake for 20-25 min.
While fish is cooking make salsa: place all ingredients in a medium bowl, stir together until well combined.
Set salsa aside.
When fish is ready, remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes.
If your fish had skin, slide a spatula between flesh and skin to remove and transfer to serving plate.
Top with salsa and serve warm.

    Yum! This sounds great! We eat a lot of fish and I’m getting kind of tired of the same old recipes all the time. Next time I make salmon I will use this! Thanks for visiting Inspiration Thursday!
