Salmon & Avocado BLT Bowl

It’s not a low-rung college football game… but rest assured, if I ever stumble onto an orchard of money trees, I shall make it happen.

The SABLTZ is what you get when you cook a Open-Face Salmon & Avocado BLT for your family, but you’re EightySevenPercenting a Whole30 (long live goat cheese and yogurt!) and you don’t eat bread.

This can present problems but I’ve found that the quickest solution to most of those problems is also the simplest: Just put it over a bowl of zucchini noodles.

Salmon & Avocado BLT Bowl

I mentioned a few recipes ago that I treated myself to a fancy schmancy vegetable spiral cutter thingy and I think that it’s still the greatest thing ever.

So instead of eating the BLT in sandwich-form (which, by the way, got seriously rave reviews), this is how I approached it, Whole30 style:

Salmon & Avocado BLT Zoodles

It's a Whole30-friendly BLT in a bowl: seared salmon, avocado, and bacon over zucchini noodles.


  • 2 slices thick bacon
  • 2 3-4oz salmon filets, skin removed
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 medium-large zucchini, cut into spirals (I have this tool)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 small handfuls of salad greens
  • 1 roma tomato, sliced
  • Avocado slices
  • Chopped chives


  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, crisp the bacon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving behind as much bacon dripping as possible.
  2. Salt and pepper the salmon and sear, covered, for 4 minutes.
  3. Flip and cook another 2 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the bacon.
  4. Discard the renderings and wipe the pan clean.
  5. Heat a drizzle of olive oil over high heat and stir in the garlic.
  6. Season the zucchini with salt and pepper and add to the pan.
  7. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  8. Divide the zoodles between two bowls.
  9. Layer the remaining ingredients on top: a small handful of salad greens, sliced tomatoes, avocado, a slice of bacon, the salmon, and garnish with the chives.
  10. Serve immediately.
