About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Guacamole with Spicy Grilled Salmon
Ingredientes para 4 porciones:

  • 8 oz de filete de salmón crudo cortado al centro – rociar con aceite de aguacate
  • 1 cucharada de pimentón ahumado
  • 1 1/2 cucharaditas de comino
  • pizca de sal marina y pimienta
  • Guacamole:
    • 2 aguacates grandes
    • 2 tomates Romanos, cortados en cubitos
    • 1/2 cebolla roja mediana, cortada en cubitos
    • 1 taza de cilantro finamente picado
    • 1 cucharadita de comino
    • jugo de 1 limón
    • sal marina y pimienta al gusto
  1. Set oven to 420F.
  2. Lightly spray the salmon with oil then rub the seasonings over the fillet.
  3. Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat, once hot, spray with a little more oil, then add the salmon skin-side up.   Sear the salmon for 1 – 3 minutes, ensuring it is not burning, then flip it over to sear for an additional 1 – 2 minutes.  Place the entire skillet (with the salmon) in the oven to finish cooking, about 6 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the center-cut salmon.

  4. Once the salmon has finished cooking, flake it with a fork.  IF the skin is crispy, dice that up, too!
  5. Add guacamole ingredients to a large bowl and mix together – it should be chunky with lots of texture.  Fold in the grilled salmon (and skin) and mix well.
  6. Enjoy the guacamole with mini bell peppers OR for your lunch in a whole wheat pita or on a sandwich.

  1. Ajuste el horno a 420F.
  2. Rocíe ligeramente el salmón con aceite y luego frote los condimentos sobre el filete.
  3. Coloque una sartén antiadherente a fuego medio-alto, una vez caliente, rocíe con un poco más de aceite, luego agregue el salmón con la piel hacia arriba. Dora el salmón durante 1 a 3 minutos, asegurándote de que no se está quemando, luego dale la vuelta para dorar durante 1 a 2 minutos adicionales.
  4. Coloque toda la sartén (con el salmón) en el horno para terminar de cocinar, aproximadamente de 6 a 10 minutos, dependiendo del grosor del salmón cortado al centro.

  5. Una vez que el salmón haya terminado de cocinarse, desmenúcelo con un tenedor. ¡SI la piel está crujiente, corta eso también!
  6. Agregue los ingredientes de guacamole a un tazón grande y mezcle; debe ser grueso y con mucha textura. Agregue el salmón a la parrilla (y la piel) y mezcle bien.
  7. Disfrute el guacamole con mini pimentones O para su almuerzo en una pita de trigo integral o en un sándwich.
