Avocado toast has truly become a favorite of mine and I've been indulging in them for awhile now.

This Jerk Salmon Avocado Toast is just EVERYTHING! It's so jam-packed with flavor and eating this toast for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (if that's your thing) will be enjoyable----I promise.
Whether you're in a hurry in the mornings or you're looking for a laid-back ease as a way to start your day, this avocado toast is super easy to make, only uses a handful of ingredients, and goes with any cup of coffee or tea that your heart desires.
It only consists of four main components: the toasted bread, mashed avocados, jerk salmon, and roasted bell peppers + tomatoes. So good!
Basically, avocado toast is an open sandwich that consists of some sort of toasted bread that comes topped with mashed avocado and a few pinches of seasonings. Of course, in recent time, avocado toast has been re-invented and has included many other toppings in addition to mashed avocados, which has made it a true morning staple.
In just a few short steps, you’ll have the most delicious breakfast toast —- Jerk Salmon Avocado Toast that’ll satisfy each morning craving possible. Here’s how to make everything:
First, you'll begin by seasoning + roasting your salmon before "shredding" it using a fork. Then roast the bell peppers and tomatoes by using a baking sheet, parchment paper, and a drizzle of olive oil and season with all herbs and seasonings.
Next, in a bowl, add the avocados (by removing the flesh from their pits and skin) along with lemon juice, salt, black pepper, cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper---mixing everything together until smooth and combined. Chunks are definitely OK!
Toast your bread and mix together the spicy maple syrup in the meantime. Finally, assemble and enjoy!
For the best avocado toast, it’s all about the toppings! It’s about whether you want to load up your toast or keep it really simple. Either way, it’ll be a quick fix in the morning.

A crusty rustic bread is perfect bread for this avocado toast. They are naturally thin, so the slices end up being perfectly sized. They are light and airy, so the toast is not too dense upon biting. Because of the large air pockets in the bread, they make for a lovely mouthfeel. Lastly, they have a heavy crust which helps to hold up toppings as well. Here’s the best breads:
The herb-roasted tomatoes offer a delicious umami-packed flavor foundation for this delicious Jerk Salmon Avocado Toast.
You can make them ahead of time in the oven, then keep the bell peppers + tomatoes in the fridge unit you’re ready to assemble the entire dish. They’ll stay fresh for up to three days in an airtight container.
Topping your avocado toast is an important step to me. While you can enjoy this avocado toast in it's classic form without additional toppings, I just love adding more flavor to everything, especially my toast.
On avocado toast, you can add any of the following toppings which include protein, herbs, etc:
Picking the best avocados is by far the most important part of this entire toast. I love using Hass avocados, however, you can use other types. Always make sure that they are fully ripe but over-ripe (meaning it's extremely soft to the touch). For the best check---always look for avocados that have a good squeeze and isn't too hard or too mushy/soft.
Also, once open, if you find that there are brown bits or sections, be sure to cut those out and discard of them before you mash everything.
Again, I mention the best types of bread when making avocado toast, however, understanding just how important it is to choose the right bread is a must! I always like using thin sliced bread that hold up well, which is why I often opt for rustic bread. You can read further down as I go more into this. In addition, be sure to always toast your bread for a nice crunch and a strong foundation to hold your toppings.
I know that avocado toast has it's many variations these days, however, I've come to conclude that mashed avocado on toast is a lot better (and easier to eat) than sliced avocado. Granted, you can always switch things up based on preference, but if I'm honest, I found that having my avocados mashed allowed for more real estate when adding additional toppings.
Of course! To make this recipe gluten-free, simply substitute bread with a GF-friendly bread.
