Grilled salmon with avocado salsa

I found this recipe on Pinterest. You can find the recipe Here  It is by far the best Salmon recipe I have ever found.  I forgot to take a picture with the avocado salsa, but don't leave it out.  It is really good.  Mango or pineapple salsa would also be good on this salmon. Jud said this was as good as steak. That is saying a lot. This guy loves his beef.

2 pounds salmon, cut into 4 pieces (I used about a pound for two people 
1 T. olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
For the Avocado salsa:
1 avocado, sliced or diced
1/2 small red onion (I used 1 thin slice and diced it)
juiceof 2 limes (I did not have a lime so used one juicy lemon)
1-2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
salt to taste
1. Mix the salt, chili powder, cumin, paprika, onion powder and black pepper together, rub the salmon fillets with olive oil and this seasoning mix.
2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the grill.
4. Combine the avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt in a bowl and mix well. Chill until ready to use.
5. Grill the salmon. (about 5 minutes)
6. Top with avocado salsa and enjoy!
