Have you ever seen a “Bacon” avocado? Available during winter months, bacon avocados are large, thin-skinned avocados that are much lighter in flavor than the more popular Haas variety.
If you happen to see bacon avocados at the market, try one out! They are exceptionally creamy and are perfect for using in sauces.
While remoulade is typically made with mayonnaise, in this case we’ve substituted the mayo with avocado and seasoned it with lime juice.
This creamy avocado sauce is perfect for serving with salmon! Sear (or bake or poach) a salmon fillet and serve it on top of the avocado remoulade.
