I really like simple salmon with lemon & dill, but my hubs is always challenging me to make it a little more flavorful.

That being said, I adore citrus & especially grapefruit.  If there is a drink on the menu with grapefruit in it, I am all in.  So I thought, why not bring that love of citrus to my dinner & make my hubs happy at the same time.

I truly loved this dish & couldn’t stop eating it.  I hope you feel the same way!


1-2 lbs Salmon Filet (wild-caught)

1 Clove Garlic, minced

1 Orange, zested & juiced

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Pepper

1 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1/2 of each a Grapefruit, Lemon & Lime, sliced thin (I used a mandeline)

Citrus Salsa

1 Grapefruit, peeled & segmented

1 Orange, peeled & segmented

1 small Shallot, diced

2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, chopped

1 Lime, juiced

Kosher Salt to taste

  1.  Preheat broiler in your oven to high & set the oven rack to about 6 inches below it
  2. Place the salmon on a lined backing sheet.
  3. In a bowl mix the garlic, orange juice, zest, salt, pepper & olive oil to make a rub.  Rub all over the salmon.
  4. Place the citrus slices on top.
  5. Broil the salmon for 6-8 minutes until it’s just opaque & flaky.
  6. While the salmon is broiling, make the citrus salsa but mixing everything together.
  7. Enjoy your salmon topped with your salsa!
