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
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
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!
