Tented Salmon in Grapefruit Marinade

This is a quick and unique recipe using a marinade made with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.

The salmon is baked in a “tent” made with foil which is so easy and quick. 

The natural juices from the salmon blend with the marinade to make a delicious sauce to serve over the salmon and the bed of rice. 

This sauce is so tasty with every bite.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

First the orange ingredients:

And then the non-orange ingredients:

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, water and brown sugar.

Peel and dice the ginger root.

Chop the onions and dice the garlic.

Add the ginger root, onions and garlic to the soy sauce mixture.

Then add the red pepper flakes, and ground pepper.

Squeeze the juice from the grapefruit into the soy sauce mixture and stir all ingredients together to make the marinade.

Lay a large piece of foil on a cookie sheet or pizza pan.  Then lay the pieces of salmon on the foil.

Pour the marinade over the salmon making sure that it stays on the foil.

Pull all of the sides of the foil up together to make a “tent” and roll the top edges tightly together to seal the tent.

Bake salmon in preheated oven for about 10 minutes.

Salt to taste and serve over rice.

Garnish with dried or fresh parsley.

Enjoy!

    like the idea because it’s not cooked with oil or butter- both are pretty heavy and disgusting. sounds like a good recipe.

      Hi There, yes, this marinade does make the salmon light compared to oil and butter. Thank you so much for stopping by!
