Method

Preheat broiler.

Arrange tomatillos, bell pepper, jalapeño and garlic in a baking dish in a single layer.

Broil, turning vegetables occasionally, until garlic is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Remove garlic, return dish to the oven and continue roasting until vegetables are tender and blackened all over, about 5 minutes.

Set aside to let cool.

Remove seeds from jalapeño, if desired.

Peel off and discard blackened skin from vegetables and transfer to a food processor.

Process until a coarse salsa forms.

Add lime juice, avocado and cilantro and process again until combined but still chunky. Season with salt and set aside.

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking, oiling the grill grates as needed.

Brush salmon on both sides with barbecue sauce and grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes on each side.

Transfer to a platter.

Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve with tomatillo salsa on the side.
