Salmon with Grapefruit Marinade

Posted by on Feb 7, 2012 in meat | 0 comments

Day 5 of a Week of Grapefruit.  We all know salmon is an excellent source of omega-3s in a form easily used by our bodies which helps our hearts, our brains, our joints, and our eyes.   But salmon has many more health benefits such as its high quality protein, Vitamin D, and Selenium content.  Wild Alaskan salmon is the least contaminated source of these healthy little guys, and I buy mine at Costco in a large bag of individually wrapped fillets because let’s face it – eating healthy is expensive, and these frozen fillets are a way I can afford to feed my family this nutritious food.   Try this flavorful marinade the next time you bake salmon.
