Grilled King Salmon with Avocado Salsa

May 13, 2015

We can't get enough of our Wild King Salmon.  Troll-caught in the North Pacific these Kings are high in oil content, rich in flavor and prime for eating. Add some avocado and consider it one of the healthiest meals on the planet.  We love this great recipe sourced from the Cookie Rookie.  There is nothing that we love more than recipes that taste so delicious that you don't even realize how healthy they are. This is one of those recipes! The combination of the flavorful rub and fresh ingredients really enhanced the salmon and made for a fantastic dinner.

Picanha is one of the lesser known pieces of beef in the United States. In Brazil and other parts of South America, it is quite prized - and for good reason.  It’s delicious.  The picanha is a sirloin cap (also called rump cover, rump cap or coulotte).  The meat itself is lean with very little inter-muscular fat but it is cut leaving the hardy fat cap on, which allows it to baste in its own delicious fats while cooking.
