Grilled Salmon With Avocado Salsa

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa is one of the most favorite fire pit bbq salmon recipes we've found because it is extremely flavorful, surprisingly simple, and utterly healthy. 

We love finding and posting recipes that are both easy and delicious, and this is one of them. This fire pit grilled salmon recipe is so full of flavor and so rich that you might wonder how it can be so healthy. The secret is in the omega 3 and omega 6 oils found in salmon and avocado. Couple that with the zest of lime and the fresh air you get from cooking on your outdoor table with grill, and you're on a healthy path for sure.
