How to Make Grilled Salmon

We prepare this grilled salmon on an indoor grill during the winter, and an outdoor grill during the summer. And it’s made in under 15 minutes! An easy dinner we love to make year round.

All you have to do is make the rub, let it sit, grill, and serve the salmon with the avocado salsa.

Every time we make this Whole30 salmon dish, we add a little extra to the grill for our Cat, Dill. He’s just as excited as we are for fresh seafood!

Grilled Salmon Rub

Before grilling, the salmon gets a rub of some delicious spices.

It’s a simple mixture of:

  • salt
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • paprika
  • onion powder
  • black pepper

Mix these spices together, brush olive oil onto the salmon filets, and cover with the rub mixture, then refrigerate for 30 minutes before grilling.

Avocado Salsa

The creamy avocado salsa (made with avocados, red onion, lime juice, and cilantro) is the perfect compliment to the spices, keeping things fresh and delicious.


  • avocado (cut into cubes)
  • red onion
  • lime juice
  • fresh cilantro

Just combine everything in a bowl and mix gently. You can keep it chunky or make it a little smoother if you prefer. Tip: this salsa is great for dipping and works with lots of other dishes too.
