  • 4 (5oz) frozen or fresh sockeye salmon filets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Avocado salsa

  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 yellow pepper diced
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup cilantro basil or parsley, chopped (I highly recommend the cilantro!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes


  • Preheat BBQ to med-high heat.
  • Brush salmon with a little bit of olive oil, then brown sugar. Season with salt and pepper then put on the grill skin-side down for 10-12 min, watching carefully so it doesn't overcook.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the salsa.
  • Remove salmon from the grill and add salsa overtop. Serve alongside brown rice or BBQ potatoes and enjoy!


Swap out the salmon for trout, tilapia or tuna.
Try out a range of different salmon marinades.
If you don’t like avocado, you can try making pineapple or mango salsa.
Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Sprinkle some water over top then reheat in the microwave and add on fresh salsa.
Freeze the cooked or raw salmon for up to 3 months.
