Spicy Salmon w/ Lime & Avocado
(Original recipe: http://www.thecookierookie.com/salmon-with-avocado/)
Start with 2 lbs of salmon cut into 4 pieces. (We get ours at Costco, it’s great!)
Make spice mix (2 tsp of: salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, and onion powder, 1 tsp of chili powder).
Rub one side of fish with olive oil.
Cover with half the spice mixture.
You can refrigerate it here if you have time. I usually come home from work and do this part and go exercise.
Preheat grill and throw the fish on, spice side down. Cover other side with oil and spices. Cook halfway and flip.
Mash up an avocado with the juice of 2 limes and some salt. (You can add half a red onion here but I don’t because 😝😝)
Cook fish til it’s done, top with avocado mix, eat. I was surprised at how good it was. I’m not a big salmon person but I can see myself eating this once a week even after Whole30.

Almost halfway there! Feeling good. I miss wine & the social aspect of going out to dinner or to happy hour. That’s about it though.
I decided to give up shopping in September (along with booze, sugar, bread, dairy, beans because if I’m gonna be miserable why not be SUPER miserable). So instead of shopping I’ve just been making a pretty intricate fall shopping list.
