Grilled salmon

  3. Place salmon fillets skin side down and season with salt and pepper. Pour olive oil over the salmon fillets and thoroughly rub in on both sides.
  4. Grease the grill with some more oil with the help of a paper towel to make sure the salmon won’t stick.
  5. Place salmon skin side down on the grill and close the lid. Grill for 10-15 minutes, depending on how well done you want it. Check every now and then.

Avocado topping

  1. Cut avocados in half. Remove the pit and spoon out the flesh. Chop into small pieces.
  2. Dice onion into medium-sized pieces and chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters.
  3. Add everything to a bowl. Drizzle with lime juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and combine well.

Matt and Megha's tips

If you don’t have salmon with the skin on, put the salmon on a piece of aluminium foil before placing it on the grill. Otherwise you risk it getting stuck and falling apart.

Salmon with skin has a higher fat content and also tastes better.
