    Wow, this was magnificent (5 stars aren't enough). DH cooked the salmon on the barbeque hotplate, while I made a double batch of the sauce, using Chipotle Caesar Dressing instead of mayonnaise for an extra zing. Served with a garden salad and used the extra sauce as a nice, thick salad dressing. Can't wait to have this one again soon. Thanks for sharing this winner.

    I made this for 2 of us but made the full recipe of sauce - it is so good and I cooked the salmon perfectly (10 1/2 minutes). You could add more hot sauce if you want more zip. This would be good as a dip and with other meats.

    I was poaching salmon and needed a sauce. I had a ripe avocado, so I searched "avocado sauce for fish" and this caught my eye. My avocado was on the small side, so I used the whole thing; worchestershire and hot sauce just didn't sound right with poached salmon, so I skipped them and added a scant Tbsp of capers. Delicious! Next time I'll try the whole recipe as shown. Thanks for the great base for a yummy sauce!

    This was really excellent! I loved that it was simple and quick to put together. My fiancé isn't a bid salmon fan..but he loved it! ;) Also, I used the whole avocado and served homemade beans and rice on the side...very good...I will be making this again! Thanks for the recipe!

    I doubled the recipe and used full fat sour cream and regular mayonnaise. Makes a good chip dip also.
