- In a skillet on medium heat, place the salmon filets skin side down. Season the flesh side with 1/2 tsp. of salt, to taste, 1 Tbsp. of olive oil and lemon juice. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until you can see the sides of the salmon that has been cooked halfway.

- In a medium bowl, add the avocado, red onion and tomatoes in a bowl. Squeeze the juice of one lime, add remaining salt and garlic powder. Mix with a spoon until combined.
