Updated: Jul 26, 2023

Salmon with Avocado-Lime Crema

Pan-Seared Salmon


  • 1 Whole Avocado

  • 1/4 cup of Mexican Crema or Sour Cream

  • 1/8 cup of Water

  • 1 tbsp of Cilantro

  • 4 Garlic Cloves

  • 2 Limes juiced

  • 1 Serrano

  • 1-2 lbs Salmon Filets

  • Avocado Oil

  • Seasoning of choice (I used Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning)


  1. Season your salmon. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium-high until it is smoking, and add a high smoke-point oil like Avocado oil to the pan.

  2. Sear the salmon for around 4-5 min (depending on thickness) with the presentation side down FIRST.

  3. Flip the salmon and cook for another 4-5 min (turn down the heat if getting too hot).

  4. Top with avocado lime crema sauce and serve with your choice of low-carb veggies. We recommend our spicy green beans!
