For the Citrus Salsa

  • 1 orange
  • ½ lime
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced

For the Salmon


  • To make the citrus salsa, remove the peel and pith from the oranges and lime using a sharp pairing knife. Cut the citrus into slices between the membranes and then cut into smaller chunks. Mix with the red onions, cilantro and garlic. Set aside while preparing the salmon.
  • To make the salmon, season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Preheat grill to medium-heat and lightly oil the grill using oil spray. Place salmon skin side down on the preheated grill. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. The salmon will release itself from the grill when it's ready so don’t try flipping it too quickly.
  • Spoon the salsa over the grilled salmon and serve immediately with choice of vegetables and/or grains.


Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 3 days in the fridge. To reheat, place on a pan with the skin-side down and reheat until warmed through.
