Feel free to use other fish such as tuna if you don’t like salmon. You can also use smoked salmon and skip the part of cooking in olive oil or butter. If you prefer beef, chicken, lamb, etc. you can use that in place of the salmon as well.
You can also skip the sesame seed if you would like and another option would be sprinkling ground chia or flax seed. You can also add in organic sour cream for a nice topping or if you need this to be dairy free, use the unsweetened coconut milk yogurt.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This salmon stuffed avocado recipe is low-carb and full of healthy fats and clean protein. This is a wonderful side dish that can also be used as a main course if you make enough of them. Try it out and let us know how you enjoy it in the comments section below.
This recipe is high in protein and healthy fats that help to stabilize your blood sugar, support lean body tissue development and improve fat burning. Avocados are rich in healthy fats, antioxidants and prebiotic fibers to support the gut microbiome.
We always recommend getting wild-caught Alaskan salmon as this has the highest amount of long-chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and the antioxidant astaxanthin. Seaweed is also rich in chlorophyll and trace minerals such as iodine, selenium and zinc that are all very beneficial for hormone balance, detoxification and energy production.
