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.

(There you go, Santina: A new post.  You happy?)

Bon appetit.
