Keeping it fresh, simple, and healthy today with this Lemon Parmesan Salmon with Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad. Grilled salmon with spices, herbs, and parmesan, served over a summery corn salad made with tomatoes, avocado, chickpeas, feta cheese, and the most deliciously addicting lemon garlic yogurt. This meal is quick, easy, extra colorful, super flavorful, and so delicious. The perfect dinner to serve any night of the week.

Summer is all about throwing fresh food on the grill, tossing it together, and calling it dinner…

Enter in this all-in-one blackened salmon. It’s the summertime dish that’s fast, fresh, healthy, so pretty, and obviously…so delicious. I couldn’t be more excited to share this recipe today!

Again, this is another recipe I made before traveling to Costa Rica. And I’m already looking forward to making it as soon I return home, which sadly, is today! But, after 5 days away I must say, I’m ready to get back. Back to cooking, and back to some sense of normalcy. To say Costa Rica has been an adventure would be a bit of an understatement. I certainly have plenty of stories. Everything ranging from a robbery, to a wildlife sanctuary (complete with sloths and the cutest baby monkeys), to a mile long ocean zip line, to a beautiful day at the beach. And of course, many, many more crazy Gerard family stories in between. I could probably write a book on this vacation. But in an effort to keep this post on the shorter side I’ll save those stories for Sunday.

So let’s focus on this the salmon, because it’s so amazingly delicious.

Spicy, herby, lemony, garlicky, with a touch of parmesan, every bite melts in your mouth. I’m betting on this dish becoming your new go-to all summer long.

It’s covered in a flavorful blackened seasoning…a mix of some of my favorites. Plenty of garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. I like to add flavor, but also be careful to still let the flavor of the salmon shine through. The garlic and smoky paprika are key here.

If you don’t have a grill, you can easily just roast or grill the salmon. Either option is going to be great!

I like to serve the salmon over a bed of garlicky yogurt, plus a delicious corn, tomato, and avocado salad. It’s basically a plate of in-season summer food, and it’s so very good.

The corn salad is simply chickpeas, grilled corn, cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh herbs, olive oil, and salt. In my book, simple (but still GOOD) is the name of the game when it comes to summer recipes.

Add a little smear of tangy yogurt and your dinner is ready.

You could also add a side of grilled bread, steamed rice, smashed potatoes, or even a little pasta. Or just simply serve as is. The leftovers are great the following day for lunch and can be bulked up with additional greens.

This dish has become my personal go-to low-key dinner when serving friends or family. It’s also a great hearty recipe to incorporate into your weekly meal prep. Then enjoy delicious healthy dinner, or lunches throughout the week. I like to make this when I know I’m having an “off” week, with very little recipe testing and photographing.

The major beauty of this recipe is that you can make it almost entirely on the grill – no cooking needed.

Perfect for these hot July temperatures!

    Made this and it was delicious, although mine didn’t look quite as beautiful as yours. I loved all the parts of it.

    Another perfect summer recipe. But a question: In the directions, it says to add juice of one lemon into the corn salad. But in the ingredients section, there’s nothing about lemon. I ended up using juice from 1/2 a lemon to brighten it up and that was fine. So lemon, or no lemon in the corn salad? (Or am I missing something.)

    Thanks!!

    1. Hey David,
      Thanks for your review and trying this recipe out, I love to hear that it was a winner! Sure, you can add some lemon! Have the best Thursday! 🌻xTieghan

    I have made a LOT of your recipes but wow was this different! Easy, yes. But so fresh, light and yet so filling! I love the corn salad, I can see that going with lots of yummy things. But the salmon was a great topper. This will be on my summer menu many, many times.
