Sesame Salmon with Grapefruit
This refreshing summertime meal is low in fat, calories and carbs but rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids thanks to the salmon, as well as vitamin C from the grapefruit.
Don't have salmon? Ahi tuna makes for a delicious substitute in this recipe.
- For the fish and the salad
- 2 Grapefruit
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 4 tablespoons Avocado oil
- freshly ground peppers
- 4 Salmon (7 oz. each)
- 6 tablespoons Sesame seeds (white and black)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 stalks Celery
- 2 Avocados
For the fish and the salad, peel and rinse the grapefruit and cut out the segments. Collect the escaping juice and squeeze the juice from the remaining pulp in the skin too.
For the dressing, mix the juice with the honey and avocado oil and season with salt and pepper.
Rinse the salmon, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Coat in the sesame seeds and fry on both sides in some olive oil for 5-6 minutes until golden brown, watching carefully so the sesame seeds don't burn.
Rinse and trim the celery and cut into thin slices. Peel the avocados, halve, remove pits and cut into pieces.
Arrange on plates with the grapefruit and celery. Place the salmon on the salads and drizzle with the dressing.
To serve, garnish to taste with sprouts and pansy blossoms.
