I’ve been majorly spoiled this summer.

In addition to my latest shipment of salmon from Copper River, the California Avocado Commission also sent me a case of avocados. Apparently they got the message that I was really into salmon and avocados as evidenced by Salmon Sandwich with Pesto Avocado Spread and Salmon Tartare. (I didn’t even realize that I was repeatedly posting recipes combining both salmon and avocados!)

So obviously you know what’s coming…

Salmon & Avocado Omelets!

It’d be silly to not combine 3 of my favorite foods in one – very healthy – breakfast, lunch or dinner!

I made an omelet, but you could also scramble them all together if you prefer.

The result is an incredibly filling meal, full of protein and good fats. Serve with toast and greens.

If you have a garden (or visit the farmers market) you’ve got to have a ton of tomatoes. Right? In addition to having a dog, part of our house-sitting duties were eating the food from the garden! Turns out, that is a very fun chore. We had a drawer full of tomatoes and they needed

salmon tartare

My second shipment of Copper River Salmon arrived last week and let me just say – I wish salmon season was year-round. I’m not sure that I’ve ever had salmon so fresh and so delicious. Even though I’ve always wanted to make a fish tartare – I’ve always been a little apprehensive. Partly because my
