Dinner in 20 Minutes!

We got home at 8pm tonight.  We are leaving the house at 5:45 tomorrow morning.  I wanted to get dinner done and on the table as quickly as possible and this dinner was fast, simple and delicious! AND it combined my favorite things- Salmon, Arugula and Avocado. YUM! PS- I try to remember to take pictures of each step- but I always forget.
Salmon Stackers with Avocado Butter
(yes there is butter, 1 tablespoon and yes it makes a difference!)
Pumpernickel Bread Toasted
1lb of Salmon
1 handful of arugula
1.5 ripe avocados
1 Lemon
1 tablespoon of butter, slightly melted
Salt and Pepper
Toast the Pumpernickel Bread in the toaster. Meanwhile, place a nonstick skillet over medium to high heat.  Spray with cooking spray.  Sprinkle the Salmon with Salt and Pepper and cook until cooked through about 3-6 minutes per side.  Meanwhile, place the avocados, lemon juice, butter, and some salt in a food processor and give it a whirl.  Process for :30 seconds until smooth.  You may need more or less lemon depending.  Taste as you go! Take out the bread out of the toaster and spread the avocado butter on both sides. 
Add the Salmon and Arugula and close the sandwich and EAT! YUM!
This sandwich was AMAZING!  Go make it! Seriously you will not be disappointed.  AND, dinner was on the table in twenty minutes.

Oh... I had a special visitor yesterday-
