Best Life Salmon

I am always nervous about cooking fish... always turns out "fishy"

This recipe was pretty easy... I was impressed, I don't think you can mess it up. I didn't make the fancy rice though too many ingredients I didn't have, so I just made the salmon and served it with white rice and some broccoli, pretty healthy.

Cutting up the grapefruit was the hardest part, but I found this blog that has an easier way than I was doing it!

Here is the recipe...

Sugar crusted Salmon

2 Florida Grapefruit
1/4 cup cilantro
2 key limes
4- 5 ounce portions fresh salmon filets
2 Tablespoons natural cane sugar
1 1/2 cups French cut green beans
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
Non-stick spray

  1. Peel and segment grapefruit.

  2. Reserve 8 slices and roughly chop the remaining fruit.

  3. Finely slice the cilantro.

  4. Zest and juice the limes.

  5. Place salmon filets skin side down onto a baking sheet coated with non-stick spray or lined with non-stick aluminum foil and place under a hot broiler.

  6. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until desired doneness.

  7. Remove and lay two slices of grapefruit on top of each of the filets.

  8. Evenly sprinkle the cane sugar over the grapefruit on top of the salmon portions and place back under the broiler to caramelize the cane sugar. Watch closely as this happens quickly.

  9. In a large bowl, toss the green beans with olive oil, zest and juice of the key limes, chopped grapefruit, sliced cilantro, cranberries and prepared brown rice.

  10. Evenly portion and arrange mixture in the center of four dinner plates. Place salmon fillets on top of green bean salad mixture and serve.
