Get Stuffed with Our Salmon-Stuffed Avocado Boats

Hello, seafoodies!

Looking for a new salmon recipe that checks the box for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner? Let us introduce you to our newest recipe: Salmon-Stuffed Avocado Boats. Featuring two favorite spring ingredients, salmon and avocados, let’s say we didn’t have any trouble finding taste-testers. We think this will become a regular in your recipe rotation as well.

Our Salmon-Stuffed Avocado Boats feature two superfood ingredients that not only taste great together but provide a healthy dose of heart-healthy fat and other beneficial nutrients. Salmon packs a boatload of essential omega-3 fatty acids, which help to boost heart and brain health. In fact, fish is healthful that the Dietary Guidelines recommend eating at least 2-3 servings every week. Also rich in heart-healthy unsaturated fats, avocados also provide over 20 vitamins and minerals—including potassium and folate—which help to reduce the risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions.

This no-fuss salmon recipe is not only packed with nutrients but is also a breeze to make. Let us know what you think!

A quick tip- serve with tortilla chips or carrots for an extra crunch.
