Twist Of Fish Leftover

Leftover salmon avocado salad.....hmmm.....fish leftover???  How does that work?  Does it smell very fishy?  Well, before creating this recipe, I can tell you I have the same questions.  But seeing food in the garbage is always the last thing I want to see.  You will never know if you don't try, right?  So, let me share my story of how this recipe was created.

Leftover Salmon Avocado Salad

In my house, we have salmon at least once a week.  Thanks to my little one.  He fell in love with salmon about 2 years ago.  I once didn't buy it because the fish didn't look great in the market that day.  Man, oh man....he didn't let me live it down, "Mommy, why didn't you buy me salmon?"  Since then, it becomes my mission that I would find some great salmon one way or the other on a weekly basis.

As you know, it is pretty pricey when it is sold at regular price.  If you buy all natural or something in better quality, it is even more.  So, if salmon is on sale, I always buy a little bit more than usual.  Well, that "little bit" sometimes goes way overboard.  That means there would be a chance of leftover.  Fish leftover doesn't sound very appetizing.  But you know me.  Leftover is always a brand new ingredient for a different recipe idea and an great opportunity, in my opinion.

While I was brewing this recipe to use up the leftover, I just thought, "In fact, this is a very economic and healthy way to bump this dinner up in a larger volume."  The day I was thinking of that question, Avocado and vine tomatoes were on sale.  Viola!  There comes this leftover salmon avocado salad recipe.

Most of my family is not big on onion cooked or raw.  So, I skipped it.  I did realize that with a little bit of onion flavor, not only add some crunch, but also balance out the strong leftover fish flavor, if there is any.  Therefore, I recommend you to add a shallot or 1/4 small red onion in this salad.
