Avocado Lime Salmon

Salmon has become one of my favorite protein sources! It is a highly nutritious fish and due to it's high (unsaturated) fat content, it doesn't dry out easily! The Omega-3 fats in it help reduce inflammation in our bodies and one 4 oz. serving of salmon contains your entire day's requirement of Vitamin D! I try to work salmon into our family's meal plan at least once a week.

This recipe details one of my favorite ways to prepare it. It's light and fresh and super simple. It's also Keto, Whole30, and Paleo-friendly. Hope you enjoy!
