Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

I love, love, loved this dish!! It was so good!! 
Delicious salmon rubbed down with some spices, topped with an awesome avocado salsa, you just can't go wrong!
This picture doesn't do it justice to how yummy this dish was. If I am not convincing enough scroll down past the recipe and click on the link to where I got the recipe from. Her pictures will for sure convince you, you should make this for dinner asap!
If if don't have a grill, no problem! We used our panini press to grill this up, and it only took 5 minutes to cook! You do need to let the rub marinade for about 30 minutes on the fish, but while that is marinading you can quickly whip up the salsa and have dinner on the table in 40 minutes flat.
Again, do yourself a favor, make this!

2 lbs salmon, cut into 4 pieces
1 tbs olive oil (I used light extra virgin olive oil)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp ancho chili powder
1 tsp black pepper

For the Avocado salsa:
1 avocado, sliced
½ small red onion, sliced
Juice from 2 limes
1-2 tbs finely chopped cilantro (depending on how big of a cilantro lover you are)
Salt to taste

Mix the salt, chili powder, cumin, paprika, onion and black pepper together, rub the salmon fillets with olive oil and this seasoning mix
refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Pre-heat the grill.
Combine the avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt in a bowl and mix well, chill until ready to use.
Grill the salmon to desired doneness. (I grilled for about 5 minutes)
Top with avocado salsa and enjoy!
