Starting this week, I feel a bit like I’m at the starting line of a race. There is so, so much to do before our move this weekend but so very little free time to actually accomplish it.  I know we’ll make it all work and everything will get done eventually (though maybe not done rightthisinstant, my typical preference.) With so much going on, we’ve been eating out or just making sandwiches waaay more often than normal and I’m starting to be over it. Ready to be settled, back to routine, and eating good homemade meals.

Of course once we are physically in, we’ll still be dealing with boxes and overthinking where to put things, so meals will need to be simple and nourishing. That’s where these wraps come in. We first made these during the summer (hence the strawberries on the plate…sigh) and we all adored them. The salmon is so good all on its own, but the addition of the grilled pineapple and the creamy avocado sauce is just so good. If you’re in the DIY mood, make your own spinach wrap breads to pull it all together. The salmon is seasoned with a simple spice rub so it is already low maintenance, but for even easier meal prep, make the salmon in advance and use the leftovers for the wraps. Alright week, let’s do this thing.

Ingredients

For the salmon: 

  • 2-3 (6 oz). salmon fillets, bones removed
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1½ tsp. cider vinegar
  • Olive oil

For the wraps:

  • 1 avocado, split and pitted
  • ½ cup low-fat greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Spinach wraps
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Sliced fresh pineapple, grilled*

Directions

  • 01

    To make the salmon, preheat the broiler and place a rack about 4-5 inches below the heating element. In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, paprika and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to blend. In another small bowl, combine the honey and vinegar and stir to blend. Line a baking pan with foil, place the salmon on the pan and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon of the spice mixture over the top and sides of each fillet. Broil for 5 minutes, brush the tops lightly with the honey mixture, and continue to broil 1 minute more. Make sure the internal temperature registers 135˚ F on an instant read thermometer. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  • 02

    To make the avocado sauce, combine the avocado, yogurt, garlic and lime juice in the bowl of a food processor or a blender.  Process until smooth.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • 03

    Lay out wrap breads. Spread a thin layer of the avocado sauce over the wrap. Add the spinach, onion, pineapple and a portion of the salmon to the wrap. Roll up tightly, burrito style. Serve immediately.

  • 04

    Note: The pineapple slices do not have to be grilled, but it enhances the flavor greatly. Throw some slices on the grill if you already have it out for another meal, and save them for use in wraps later. Alternatively, sear in a grill pan.

    Ooh Annie, these look so good! Good luck with the move! Can’t wait to see snaps of the new house :-)

  • Amber

    Sounds yummy! Yet another recipe that will be going on my menu this week (last Friday you saved the day with your harvest salad). And I know how it is with moving- so impressed that you are even staying up-to-date with your blog through all this!

  • Nancy Long

    I’m envious, would love to be moving – good luck

  • hope the move goes smoothly..and this wrap sounds pretty delicious, esp the avocado sauce.

  • When we were moving, we ate SO MUCH TAKEOUT…to the point where the.boy was getting really upset that I wasn’t cooking! I guess I didn’t realize how much he appreciates a home-cooked meal. These wraps would have gone over really well with him. Love how easy they are!

  • Love this recipe! What a great combo. I’m putting this on the menu next week! thanks for sharing this!

  • Tanis Williams

    Made this for dinner tonight! Grilled the salmon. Used canned pineapple and grilled it. The combination of the spices, avocado sauce and everything else was delicious! Will definitely do again!

  • Lindsey

    This was our dinner tonight and I was really surprised at how well this wrap came together. It was so, so good! Thank you for such a lovely, flavorful recipe. It was also my first time making tortillas with the food processor. My husband always wants dough to be a hand-done, “tactile” experience, but after tonight he is a believer! They were so easy and turned out perfectly!

    So glad you enjoyed them!
