Spicy Salmon with Cucumber Noodles & Avocado Dill Dressing

Salmon with a spicy rub and a spiralized cucumber noodle salad with a creamy avocado dill dressing. A healthy dinner ready in just 25 minutes!

I have a STRONG feeling this 25-minute spicy salmon dinner will become part to your rotation. Why? Because it became part of mine!

Of course it did, right? I love salmon. From Blackened Salmon with Mango Rum Sauce to Honey Soy Glazed Salmon, I can have it for dinner every week. Salmon is one of those staples that I always have on hand in my freezer. Versatile, heart healthy, and it cooks on the stove in just 8 minutes.

I mean if that doesn’t scream weeknight meal, I don’t know what does.

Also, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention time and time again how much I LOVE my Inspiralizer. You can use a julienne peeler for the cucumber in this recipe but I HIGHLY recommend the Inspiralizer. I use mine all the time.

What a great pairing, you guys. The crunch of the cucumber noodles with the deliciously creamy avocado dill dressing and the heat of the spicy salmon. SO YUM! This is a great middle-of-the-week meal that I’m sure the whole family will love.

Make it tonight! Just 25 minutes!

Salmon with a spicy rub and a spiralized cucumber noodle salad with a creamy avocado dill dressing. A healthy dinner ready in just 25 minutes!

Servings: 4 servings
Author: Jamie Silva
Ingredients
  • 4 salmon fillets wild caught
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cayenne powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil you can also use olive oil or coconut oil
  • 2 cucumbers
Avocado Dill Dressing
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh dill chopped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine the chili powder, cayenne, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Lay the salmon filets on a clean work surface and sprinkle the spice mix evenly over each filet, rubbing it on all sides.
  2. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add 2 of the salmon filets and cook, undisturbed for about 4 minutes. Flip the filets and cook for another 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining 2 filets. Set aside.
  3. To make the avocado dill dressing, blend avocado, lemon juice, garlic, dill, salt, pepper, and water in a blender. Pour into a bowl and set aside.

  4. Spiralize the cucumbers into thin ribbons-like strands (Blade A on Inspiralizer*). Pat the cucumber noodles dry with paper towels. Mix the cucumber noodles with the avocado dill dressing gently then serve with salmon. Enjoy!

*You can use a julienne peeler for the cucumber but I HIGHLY recommend getting an Inspiralizer. It was a game changer for me!
