A tangy-sweet burst of citrus from premium Pittman & Davis Ruby Red Grapefruit elevates this sweet salmon dish above the commonplace! No soy sauce here…this delicious, heart-healthy and impressive dish satisfies the taste buds and fits with many dietary restrictions.
4 salmon fillets (4 oz. each)
¼ c. juice from Pittman & Davis Ruby Red Grapefruit
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. olive oil
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
Fresh thyme sprigs
Bring the grapefruit juice, vinegar, syrup and garlic to a boil in a small saucepan; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Transfer 2 tablespoons to small bowl; add oil. Set remaining glaze aside.
Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat a grill rack. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper, place skin side down on grill rack and grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-6 inches from heat until fish flakes easily with a fork (10-12 minutes). Baste occasionally glaze. Drizzle with reserved glaze, garnish with fresh thyme sprigs and serve.
