For this easy-to-prepare salmon recipe, we pan seared the outsides of salmon fillets until lightly caramelized on a hot baking sheet, and then oven-roasted at a lower temperature until deliciously moist and tender inside. Serve topped with a delightfully tangy-sweet Floribbean cuisine-inspired grapefruit salsa for an impressive entrée.

Why Try? Prepare salmon like a seasoned expert with this easy-to-prepare recipe finished with a vibrant spicy-sweet grapefruit salsa.

Foodie Byte: The heat in fresh jalapenos may vary from pepper to pepper; taste and adjust the quantity to your liking. For a spicier salsa, try adding Serrano peppers.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 475°F.
  2. Combine pink grapefruit marmalade, green onions, bell pepper, jalapeno and flat leaf parsley in a small bowl and stir until fully blended. Add diced grapefruit and gently stir to blend. Keep cold.
  3. While preparing salmon, preheat a baking sheet in hot oven.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut fillet into 4 equal pieces; pat dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Rub fillets lightly on all sides with olive oil and season with kosher salt and black pepper.
  5. Remove preheated baking sheet from oven; carefully arrange fillets, skin side down, on baking sheet and return to oven.
  6. Immediately reduce oven temperature to 275°F.
  7. Oven roast salmon for 10 to 12 minutes or until the fish is cooked to desired doneness.
  8. To serve, top each fillet with grapefruit salsa.
