Step 1: Prepare the Salmon

Mix salt, pepper, garlic powder, coriander, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, and onion powder. Add olive oil and stir into a paste. Rub paste into salmon, and refrigerate salmon for one hour.

Step 2: Make the Salsa

Dice avocado, red onion, and cilantro. In a small bowl, mix olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, and cumin. Pour over avocado/cilantro and stir. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Step 3: Cook Salmon

Preheat broiler. Cover a cookie sheet or broiler pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Put salmon on cookie sheet and place about 6 inches under the broiler. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, watching closely. Salmon should be cooked to 145 degrees.

Remove from broiler, top with avocado salsa, and serve immediately.
