Salmon Lettuce Wraps

These Salmon Lettuce Wraps are again a recipe I found in “Clean Eating” magazine.   This recipe is delicious.   What I really like about it, it’s filling yet it doesn’t give you a heavy bloated feeling like when you eat something heavy or greasy.  It’s light and yummy!  I can’t wait to make this recipe again.

Salmon has many health benefits.   It’s rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.  Salmon is one of the best sources of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.  It’s a great source of protein, high in vitamin B, good source of potassium and loaded with selenium.   Here are some health benefits to mango I didn’t know.   Mango helps is digestion, promotes healthy gut, boosts immunity, promotes eye health, and helps lower cholesterol.   Avocado is loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids.     I also learned that studies suggest cilantro can help remove heavy metals from your body.  This is big since most people are unknowingly exposed to heavy metals on a regular basis.   Here is the recipe!



1 8-oz wild salmon fillet

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp avocado oil

1/2 lemon, juiced

1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

4 large butter lettuce leaves

Season salmon with salt and pepper.  In a skillet on medium-high heat, heat oil.  Add salmon and cook for 4 minutes per side.  Drizzle salmon with lemon juice; flake salmon into pieces.  In a bowl, combine avocado, mango and cilantro.  Divide salmon among the leaves; top with avocado-mango mixture.
