Serves: 12
1 1/2  lb.  wild Copper River salmon fillet, skin removed
3/4  cup  Hawaiian salt, coarse sea salt or kosher salt
4 1/2  cups  cherry or grape tomatoes, diced
1 1/2  cups  sweet white onion, finely diced
  green onions, chopped
  Fresh California Avocados, halved and seeded
  As needed  sprigs of cilantro or chives to garnish

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados


  1. Place salmon in a plastic or glass container and rub both sides with the salt. Cover the container and chill in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  2. Rinse salmon thoroughly and soak in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes, changing the water once, after 15 minutes. Remove fish and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Dice fish and place in a mixing bowl. Add tomato, onion and green onions; toss gently to combine. Note: If onion is not sweet, soak the diced onion in cold water for 10 minutes to remove bitterness.
  4. Mound salmon mixture onto each avocado half. Garnish with cilantro or chives and serve immediately. Add a crostini to the presentation, if desired.

*Large avocados are recommended for these recipes. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
