INGREDIENTS (1 serving)

-1 filet of salmon
-1 avocado
-1/2 lemon
-1/8th-1/4th onion, diced
-Salt and pepper for seasoning

PROCEDURE

1) Season and cook salmon (I used a convection oven at 400F for about 25 minutes)
2) Once salmon is finished, fork and shred out the salmon in a bowl
3) Spoon out the avocado from its shell and mix it with the shredded salmon, add lemon juice from lemon, and onion. Mix will for even distributionDSC_0455
4) Transfer the mixture back into the avocado shell to STUFF it up. You can alternatively put it in between bread and make a sandwich. Enjoy!

OBSERVATIONS
Approx Time: 30 minutes
Difficulty: 2/10

-Chicken breast can also be used to supplement for the salmon!
-Juice from lime or lemon not only adds to the flavor, but the acidity from the citric acid prevents the avocado from oxidizing; allowing it to maintain its tasty green color
-This dish is loaded with nutrients; proteins from salmon as well as healthy monounsaturated fats and vitamins from the avocado. Eat this dish with a complex carb source (brown rice, whole grain breads, etc.) to get maximum benefits from all macronutrients!
