Salmon with Fennel, Bell Pepper, and Grapefruit Salad
I wasn't going to post this meal because it is a strange little something that I threw together after somewhat randomly choosing items at Whole Foods that looked good to me. I wanted some salmon, so that was the first item. Then wandering through the produce area, I decided on fennel because I love fennel and haven't cooked with it in a while. Next I grabbed red bell peppers, because... I don't know, why not. Then I remembered that I once upon a time had a recipe for fennel and bell pepper salad with an orange and parmesan dressing. I was more in the mood for grapefruit and into the basket one went.
I sauteed thinly sliced fennel and bell peppers, and instead of making a dressing, I just peeled the grapefruit, removed the membranes, and added it to the mix. I must say, it was quite delicious.
I salted and peppered the salmon and cooked it in a cast iron pan.
