Sautéed Wild Copper River Salmon with California Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salad


Enjoy a beautiful salad featuring California Avocados, Copper River Salmon, mango and tomato, ready in 25 minutes!


Serves: 4

1 Fresh California Avocados, peeled and diced*
2 cups chopped tomato
1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Combine the avocado, tomato, mango, onion, lime juice, cilantro, and about one third of the salt in a bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the salmon with the remaining salt and pepper. Add to the skillet, skin side up and cook until nicely browned, about 4 minutes. Turn and cook until skin is crisp and the salmon is still slightly translucent in the center, about 4 minutes longer.
  3. Spoon the avocado mixture over the salmon and serve.

Serving Suggestion: For a beautiful presentation and delicious way to increase your daily servings of vegetables, serve on a bed of baby arugula or spring mix salad.

*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.
