  • Summary

    I use wild king salmon for this recipe, because that's what I catch. But any salmon or large trout would work, as would any other big piece of fish, really. I like this salsa with striped bass, mahi mahi and yellowtail a lot, and I bet it would be good with halibut, red snapper, cobia, redfish, walleye or black seabass, too. Don't skimp on the soak time for the red onion, unless you like the bite you get from raw onions. The acid in the lime juice really helps tame it.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds salmon fillets, skin on or off
    • Salt
    • 3 tablespoons high smoke point oil such as canola, safflower, grapeseed or rice bran oil
    • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
    • Juice of 2 limes, about 1/4 cup
    • 1 large garlic clove, minced
    • 1 to 3 hot green chiles such as serrano, minced
    • 1 tablespoon green chile sauce
    • 2 avocados, cut into chunks
    • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
