Salmon Stuffed Avocado

|Salmon Stuffed Avocado

I love using avocados for quick meals like this one. Avocados go great with chicken, tuna or sardines (also check out my Sardine Stuffed Avocado).

Including avocado in your diet is the best way to boost your electrolyte intake without taking supplements. An average avocado has less than 4 grams of net carbs, is very high in fibre, healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFA) and contains 50% EMR potassium.

Salmon is high in healthy omega 3 fatty acids and potassium. When possible, opt for wild-caught salmon from sustainable sources. Farmed salmon may be inexpensive but is often high in toxic chemicals called PCBs, which are potential carcinogens linked to liver cancer in humans. Studies in animals also showed that PCBs weaken the immune system and affect thyroid hormone levels!

I just made this and it is really delicious. Just started the diet on Thursday and I really love your blog.  Best one I have found.
Thank you


Thank you Cathy!


I did not have dill - so I used fresh dried, Thai basil. And, I skipped to the salmon salad prep because I used canned red Sockeye salmon.


Hi, This looks great! How much dill did you use?
Thanks for all of your great recipes


Thanks for noticing - just added this ingredient. I used 2 tablespoons Smile


U think canned salmon would work?


Yes, you can use canned salmon too Smile


Looove avocados and this looks like a perfect lunch idea for work!


Thanks MJ!
