Directions

First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the salmon fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet.
In the blender or food processor, combine the lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, chopped jalapeno, garlic, and olive oil and pulse until well-combined into a sauce. Then, brush the salmon fillets with the garlic-lime sauce.
Bake the salmon filets for about 12-15 minutes, or until cooked through and flaky.
While the salmon is baking, grab 1 large bowl and 1 smaller bowl for the salsa. In the small bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, salt and pepper and mix until well-blended.
In the large bowl, combine the diced tomatoes and avocadoes.
Pour the garlic-lime dressing into the larger bowl and mix until well combined.
Serve the salsa along side the baked salmon fillets and enjoy!
