We borrow from Colombia's take on guacamole—spiked with both lime juice and vinegar as well as fresh chilies—to create an easy, no-cook sauce for salmon fillets. A fresh tomato-cilantro salsa finishes the dish, adding a bright, acidic note to balance the rich, savory fish.

Tip

Don't shy away from using the habañero chili. Its fruity flavor pairs perfectly with the avocado. It does give bold spiciness to the sauce, but the richness of the salmon keeps the heat in check.

This recipe is a go-to! Normally I add a little more of this or that for personal taste but this recipe gets it done the first time. Super quick and easy. The sauce is perfect and a multitude of veggies as well as chicken. Highly recommend!

Great recipe. Hubby liked it and for some reason i thought it would be complicated - went off like a dream. He want me to cook again. Maybe buying salmon from a supplier.
