Ingredients

  • 1 Pound wild Alaska salmon fillets or steaks, poached, grilled, or broiled, and cooled
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and cubed
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons capers
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as dill, basil, parsley, tarragon and/or chives
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

Break the cooked salmon into chunks in a bowl. Gently toss with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve with lemon wedges.

Salmon Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
