Grilled Balsamic and Grapefruit Salmon

My neighbor and good friend kindly brought me some grapefruits off her grandparent’s tree. I was so excited to dig right into them.I love grapefruits for breakfast, but also wanted to use them for a great dinner. I found this recipe on Sunkist and it was great! Nice and light too!


Ingredients: Serves 4
1 cup freshly squeezed Sunkist® grapefruit juice
2 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 salmon fillets, 6 oz. each
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
8 Sunkist® grapefruits slices, 1/2 ” thick, 1 1/2 oz. each

Combine Sunkist grapefruit juice, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar in medium saucepan. Boil until reduced by half, approximately 15 minutes. Hold warm.
Season each side of salmon fillet with 1/16 tsp. salt and 1/16 tsp. pepper. Grill salmon, presentation side down, until just done in center, about 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness of fillet.
Brush salmon with 1 tablespoon Sunkist grapefruit glaze during grilling and just before removing from grill.
Place 2 Sunkist grapefruit slices on serving plate and top with cooked salmon fillet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon glaze on top of salmon.
I put mine atop greens too…very good!
