Grilled Salmon with Black Bean Salsa
Grilled Salmon with Black Bean Salsa. With the combination of salmon, black beans and avocado, this was a meal in itself. No side dish needed! Delicious!
  • 1 can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (or more) of Tomato, seeded and diced
  • ½ - 1 cup Red Onion, chopped
  • ½ cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Avocado, diced
  • 1 Lime
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cumin
  • 1 pound (appx) Salmon
  1. First of all, rinse and drain the black beans.
  2. Cut the tomatoes in half, remove the seeds, and dice. I used 2 good sized tomatoes off the vine. Roma tomatoes would be great too. I had about 1 cup, having a bit more than that would have worked great too.
  3. Chop up the onion and cilantro, and dice the avocado. Put the beans, tomato, onion, avocado and cilantro in a bowl. Drizzle with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil, juice from the lime, and salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Set in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  4. Heat up the grill to medium high to high heat. Brush both sides of the salmon with olive oil and sprinkle the flesh side with salt, pepper, and a tiny bit of cumin.
  5. Place the salmon, skin side down, on the grill and cook for about 3 - 4 minutes. I close the lid on the grill while it is cooking. Flip the salmon over and cook another 2-3 minutes until done. Be careful, the salmon might start to flake as it finishes cooking.
  6. Remove the salmon from the grill and serve topped with the black bean salsa. Enjoy!
