  1. Place soy sauce, garlic, ginger, honey, sesame oil, vinegar and olive oil in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Place salmon filets in a shallow dish and pour half the soy sauce mixture over top; turning filets to coat on all sides. Set aside.
  3. Place water chestnuts, carrot, bell pepper and cabbage in a medium bowl and toss with remaining soy sauce mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Add avocado and toss to combine. Set aside.
  4. Heat small amount of olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Place salmon skin-side up and cook until nicely browned, about 6 minutes. Turn salmon over and cook until it is cooked through, about 6 minutes more.
  5. To serve: Plate salmon and spoon slaw over each filet. 

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
