  2. Mix well, then add the avocado and gently incorporate.
  3. Refrigerate until serving.
  4. Optional: Cooked brown rice is a nice side to this dish.
  5. To cook the salmon:

  7. Add the salmon filets, skin-side up, to the baking dish.
  8. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow it to marinate.
