Delicious Food!

So, there's something I don't talk about on the blog much...and I have no idea why that is.  But, here's the deal.  I love to cook, and I cook pretty much every day!  And I find lots of new and fun recipes, and...I never post any of them, really.  What is up with that?!

Anyway, I made a great new salmon recipe yesterday and I LOVED IT.  So, I decided to post it here!  I originally found it on the Weight Watcher's website back when I was a member.  I copied and pasted it into an email (tricky, right??!) and saved it for later.  Yesterday, I found it, and I decided to give it a shot.  Without further ado.....

Broiled Salmon with Citrus Salsa

olive oil
salt and pepper
1 cup orange sections, coarsely chopped (I used one whole orange)
1 cup grapefruit sections, coarsely chopped (I used half of a grapefruit)
1/2 cup sweet red pepper (I didn't measure, but used half red pepper and half purple pepper)
1/2 cup onion 
jalapeno pepper
1 tbsp sugar
filets of salmon

So, I don't really measure anything...just use whatever you feel would be tasty.  :)

Place filets on the rack of a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.  Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper (I sprinkled with garlic salt, because...well, just because).  Broil 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes.

In the meantime...combine all the other ingredients to make the salsa.  Take the salmon out of the oven, and TADA!  You have a super easy, super delish, refreshing and fun meal.

I served it with a microwaveable Seeds of Change quinoa/brown rice mix with garlic.  It was fantastic.  I also sauteed some onions in olive oil and then threw in some frozen butternut squash, covered it, and let it steam for awhile.  When it was done, I just sprinkled a little bit of salt on, and - voila!  A delish AND healthy meal!

Matt and I eat salmon once or twice a week (gotta get those Omega-3's in!), so I am always looking for a new and different salmon recipe so we don't get bored.  I've done marinated salmon, salmon burgers, salmon tacos, baked salmon, spice-encrusted salmon...you name it!  Do YOU have a tasty salmon recipe?  If so, tell me about it! 

Oops!  Forgot to mention for all of you WW ladies that one filet with 2/3 cup salsa is approximately 9 points.  I'm not sure I completely believe this, though, because it is SO light and fresh!

Oh how I wish I loved salmon. I really should try it again because I'm not picky and I like most things. Perhaps I just haven't had good salmon.

The recipe sounds quite good - actually so does the whole meal. The only hitch for me would be that I've never cooked salmon before, but I think I could follow this recipe well and not create a mini-kitchen disaster. I've always been scared about seasonings, but this would eliminate that worry. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

We eat salmon a couple times a week too, so I will definitely have to try this!

That sounds super delicious! I can never think of creative things to do with salmon.

Jennifer said...

I'll have to pass this onto my uncle. He only eats seafoods and fish.
