As the weather warms up, I find myself grilling anything and everything. I don’t know if it’s simply because there are less dishes in the kitchen to clean when grilling, or if it’s just experiencing the great outdoors. One thing I do appreciate about grilling is the fact that there is no unwanted, lingering smells left in the house from cooking. Since I love salmon, this grilled salmon recipe is perfect to make because it keeps the fishy smell out of my house and my taste buds satisfied. All the flavors from the spices mixed with the refreshing avocado topping makes it a keeper in my recipe book!
