Grapefruit and Pistachio Crusted Salmon
I’ve got some more grapefruit love for you today!
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Sandy posted this beautiful baked salmon dish on her blog. On the same day, I received a shipment of these gorgeous pink grapefruit from Harry & David. After seeing Sandy’s salmon, and tasting the grapefruit, I decided to play with her recipe and treat the family to a good salmon dinner. We love salmon at our house (well 3/4 of us do at this time), so I’m always looking for new ways to serve it. And to be honest, I hadn’t made salmon for dinner in too long…probably since I posted about this Salmon Salad a couple of months ago!
All the ingredients for the pistachio topping came together just perfectly. To be honest, I was enjoying the topping all on it’s own way too much during “taste-testing”. The crust was so good over the wild sockeye salmon I used (I purchase it frozen at Costco so I always have some in the freezer for convenience), but I think it would also be good on any other firm white fish like grouper or red snapper. Citrus goes so well with all kinds of seafood or fish, so it’s worth a try to experiment! I paired up the salmon with a nice spinach salad topped with this simple grapefruit vinaigrette for a great healthy weeknight dinner. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
