Broiled Salmon with Grapefruit Avocado Salsa

IMG_4332I haven’t been doing a lot of home cooking lately due to weekends away and weeknights traveling for work, so when I had a day off and a chance to feed my body something healthy and fresh, I immediately knew I wanted this for lunch. Simple broiled salmon, whole wheat couscous, and a citrusy salsa with rich avocado and piquant jalapeno.

Broiled Salmon with Grapefruit Avocado Salad
Serves 2
Just the Tip / Inspired by Williams Sonoma

What I used:

  • 3/4 – 1 pound salmon
  • chili powder, salt, pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and cut into supremes/segments
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 3 tbsp diced red onion
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • salt, pepper
  • prepared whole wheat couscous, for serving

What I did:

  1. Preheat broiler. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lay the salmon, skin-side down, on the baking sheet. Brush with the olive oil, and season with a little chili powder, salt, and pepper. Broil for 9-11 minutes until it is medium rare and flakes apart easily.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa. In a small bowl, combine the grapefruit, jalapeno, cilantro, red onion. Right before serving, add the avocado, lime juice, and season with salt and pepper. Done.
