Grilled salmon with citrus salsa sounds like a delightful dish! Here’s a simple recipe to try:

Grilled Salmon with Citrus Salsa


For the salmon:

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each), skin-on or skinless
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for brushing

For the citrus salsa:

  • 1 orange, peeled and diced
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and diced
  • 1 lime, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the salmon:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
    • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
    • Brush the grill with olive oil to prevent sticking.
    • Place the salmon fillets on the grill, skin-side down if they have skin. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the grill and set aside.
  2. Make the citrus salsa:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the diced orange, grapefruit, lime, red onion, and cilantro.
    • Drizzle with olive oil and gently toss to combine.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve:
    • Place grilled salmon fillets on plates or a platter.
    • Spoon citrus salsa over the top of each fillet.
    • Garnish with additional cilantro if desired.
  4. Enjoy!
    • Serve immediately while the salmon is still warm.

This dish pairs beautifully with a side of rice or quinoa, and steamed vegetables. It’s light, fresh, and perfect for a summer meal!
