1/2 cup minced shallots or finely chopped sweet onion

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 large salmon fillet (1 pound), cut into 4 pieces

3/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice, preferably pink or ruby red


Saute the shallots in the oil in a nonstick skillet until

tender, about 4 minutes. Add the salmon and grapefruit juice.

Cover and simmer over low heat until the salmon is opaque, about

6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the salmon to warm serving plates.

Increase the heat and simmer the juices about 2 minutes until

reduced to 1/2 cup; pour over the salmon.
