Mealthy Tip

Did you know serrano peppers have been known to boost your immune system, improve heart health, relive arthritis symptoms and sore muscles, and even relieve the pain from shingles? Pretty cool for a hot pepper!

If you don't have an immersion blender, place the salsa verde ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until desired consistency is reached.

The avocado salsa verde was fantastic. I used a jalapeño instead of a serrano pepper, 2 garlic cloves, and closer to 1/4 cup cilantro. It was surprisingly creamy, and very delicious. It can stand on its own with or without the salmon, and I'm anxious to try it in other dishes.

Easy, delicious dinner that only took 30 minutes to make! I actually made the salsa ahead of time and refrigerated it until I was ready to make the salmon. Perfection!

The skin turned out extra crispy and the meat was tender and flaky! I made the avocado salsa verde but left out the serrano pepper because I didn't want it to be too spicy. It literally took around half an hour to make and was perfect for our light Saturday dinner.

Delicious, flaky, salmon! I made my avocado salsa extra spicy by using a jalapeño pepper instead of Serrano. I love how quick this recipe was, I definitely plan to make this again.

I made this with spiralized zucchini and it was really good! My husband and I both loved it. The filets we used didn't have skin on them, which I didn't realize at the time! Bummed! It still turned out great though.
