1.  In a small bowl, add the Avocado Salsa ingredients, EXCEPT for the avocado. Don’t add the avocado until about 10 minutes before you’re ready to eat. Stir well and let the salsa refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2.  Mix the cumin, coriander, paprika, onion powder, salt, and pepper together. Sprinkle the seasoning on both sides of the salmon.

3.  In a large skillet on medium-high heat add the olive oil and butter. Let this melt and get hot. Add the salmon skin-side-down. Cook the salmon 2-3 minutes per side OR to the doneness you prefer.

4.  Take the salmon out of the skillet and add the avocado salsa to the top. EAT IT UP! You’re going to love it!

Cooks' note:
I served my Wild Salmon with sauteed broccoli. As soon as I started cooking the salmon, I started cooking the broccoli. They'll be done at the same time!
