Ingredients

  • 2 (3.5 oz) salmon fillets
  • Santa Fe seasoning blend (2 teaspoons of cumin, 1 teaspoon of coriander, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1 teaspoon of thyme, 1/8 of a teaspoon of clove, 1/8 of a teaspoon of allspice, 1/8 of a teaspoon of ground cinnamon)

  • 1/8 of a cup of canned red peppers, finely chopped

  1. Coat the salmon fillets with Santa Fe seasoning. On a pre-heated grill, cook them for 8-10 minutes on each side until flaky, and cook all the way through. Remove them from heat.
  2. On 2 plates, arrange a bed of lettuce topped with half of the tomato, corn, cheese, peppers, and avocado. Place the fillet on top.
