Food as MedicineSM Tip

Salmon is one of the best sources for Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3's provide a wide variety of health benefits, from reducing inflammation to helping to prevent cancer cell growth.

Culinary Taste Tip

The grapefruit juice, hoisin sauce and sesame oils combine for a flavorful glaze on the salmon while protecting the fish from drying out during broiling.

Culinary Technique Tip

If a ridged pan is not available, broil the salmon 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side.


One-half large (or 1 small) pink or red grapefruit
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, such as KAME brand
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
Four 4-ounce skinless salmon fillets
Three-quarter teaspoon salt
2 cups (6 ounces) pea pods, cut lengthwise into thin strips
1 cup sliced Napa cabbage
One-half cup sliced radishes
2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted (optional)


Peel and coarsely chop grapefruit, saving juices. Measure juices, squeezing the chopped grapefruit a little more if needed to measure 2 tablespoons juice.

Combine the 2 tablespoons grapefruit juice, hoisin sauce and sesame oil. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the mixture to a large bowl. Brush remaining mixture over salmon fillets; sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt. Heat a ridged grill pan* over medium heat until hot. Add salmon; cook 3 to 4 minutes per side or until salmon is opaque and firm to the touch.

Meanwhile, add pea pods, cabbage, radishes, reserved chopped grapefruit and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt to bowl with reserved hoisin sauce mixture; toss well. Arrange on four serving plates; top with salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

*If a ridged pan is not available, broil the salmon 4 to 5 inches from heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side.


One-half cup sliced daikon (Japanese radish) may replace the red radishes and 1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage may replace the Napa cabbage. 1 tablespoon molasses plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce may replace the 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce.

Isn't this a little high in Sodium for someone with hypertension?

From: bizzycloud

I would reduce the salt to 1/4 teaspoon or eliminate the salt altogether

Wow, it`s dangerous to read such recipes, when the breackfast is over and the lunch is not soon! Once I had to write a research paper about recipes with salmon, I wish I had added it there.
