Mediterranean Barbecued Salmon

I got this recipe with quick verbal communication between classes from Rachel Frankl (who is also on CF Santa Cruz Central's web site tonight)! Perhaps there are other reasons why she is always one of the first one's to finish a wod with impeccable form! She has an impeccable diet, too! We just can NOT deny that outstanding performance in the gym typically coincides with good nutrition!!! (Especially Paleolithic nutrition standards). Thank you, Rachel for sharing your wonderful, healthy and Paleo-terrific recipes! You're an inspiration... both in the gym, and in the kitchen!!! Thank you and keep up the awesome work! :-)

Salmon filet (cut into about 4oz individual portions)
Place each 4oz portion in its own tin foil wrap, and top with Mediterranean salsa.
2 tomatoes, diced
1 small yellow/sweet onion
2 cloves garlic,l minced
1 Avocado, chopped

Olive oil
some salt & pepper
lemon juice (or lemon slices)

Top each salmon piece with a little olive oil, mediterranean salsa, sprinkle with a little sea salt and pepper and place a slice of lemon (or lemon juice) over the top. Seal the tin foil around the filets and barbecue for 12-15 minutes on medium heat. You will be able to hear the juices bubbling in the foil before you take it off the barbecue. Adjust the time and/or heat accordingly. This was delicious! Fresh, fun, simple, and Paleo! ENJOY! :-)
Thank you Rachel!
