Health Awareness Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Umm Yum!
Last week we talked about the benefits of eating at least two fish dishes each week for a small step to a healthy living lifestyle. Salmon is a personal favorite around the farm, so we thought this was a great opportunity to find a delicious recipe to try and share with all of you! Some of the benefits specifically, salmon can provide are:

Rich in Omega 3 fatty acids
High quality protein
Essential Amino acids
Vitamin A
Vitamin D
Vitamin B6
Vitamin B
Vitamin E
