Salmon with Avocado Sauce

August 2, 2012

It is quite lovely to eat supper on our porch, looking at the lake, and enjoying the tastes of the season.  Here is a recipe for one of my favorite accompaniments to grilled salmon, avocado dip, which we recently had with grilled corn and a strawberry-spinach salad.

Avocado Dip

(serves 2)

1/2 avocado

fresh lemon or lime juice, to taste

1 1/2 tbsp plain yoghurt (you could use mayonnaise if you don’t have yoghurt)

1 clove garlic, minced

salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, mash avocado.  Squeeze in some lemon or lime juice.  Stir in yoghurt and garlic, then season with salt and pepper.  Taste and adjust citrus and seasonings.  Serve with grilled or roasted salmon.

If you are interested in the salad, it is spinach, strawberries, candied pecans, and goat cheese, with a balsamic vinegar-olive oil dressing with just a hint of sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

For another delicious salmon recipe, try my maple salmon.

How do you like your salmon? 

Have you ever grilled corn?  This summer was my first time and I love it!

    I have never grilled corn. I don’t think I’d like the grill marks. How was it? I bought four cobs of corn yesterday and they turned out to be two different varieties, 2 light and 2 dark. They were both very tasty, but the lighter ones were tastiest. We just had corn and Mom’s tomato salad. Yum.

    Ewwwww. Mayo….

    Grilled corn is the stuff of my dreams. I live for late summer grilled cobs of corn. My friend is bringing some over tomorrow night for a BBQ and I’m already drooling.
