Baked Salmon with Grapefruit Marinade

Tender and flaky salmon with fresh citrus flavor ready in 20 minutes.

Grapefruit Marinated Salmon

This is a quick and unique recipe for salmon that’s cooked in a delightful marinade made with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and a blend of fresh ginger root, soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic.

The salmon is baked along with the marinade in a “tent” that’s made with foil.

I especially like baking salmon in a foil tent because it steams in its own juices (in this case it steams in the delicious marinade), cooks evenly, and is super quick and easy to make.

Also, the natural juices from the salmon blend with the marinade to make a wonderful sauce to serve over the salmon and a bed of rice.

Here’s another delicious salmon recipe that’s served over rice you may like “Marsala Salmon with Mushrooms and Rice“.

Serve this flavorful salmon as a main dish, for lunch or even in a salad like in this “Baked Salmon and Avocado Salad“.

  1. 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!

  2. This looks and sounds amazing!!!I am going to try this asap I love cedar plank salmon and I’m trying to think of how I could incorporate a cedar plank in this recipe……maybe if i put a small piece in with the salmon and then close the foil around it….hmmm. I will let you know:) Thanks for sharing!!

    • Meghan, great idea! The flavor of the cedar plank would go perfect with this dish. Please do let me know how it works. Thank you!

  3. This looks so good and simple to make, thanks for sharing!

  4. Fantastic flavor here and I really like the cooking method! Great post.
