Step 1

Adjust the top rack in the oven. Preheat the oven to broil. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Onto the prepared baking sheet, add the salmon. Season the salmon filet with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, honey and cayenne pepper. Brush honey mixture on each fillet. Place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes, or until desired doneness and the top of the salmon has caramelized.

For the Avocado Grapefruit Salsa: Using a pairing knife, remove the skin of the grapefruit. Cut along the inside of the peel to separate the segments.

In a medium bowl, add the avocado, grapefruit, shallot, and cilantro. Fold to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with basmati rice.

Tip: Make the salsa 30 minutes in advance to allow the flavors to macerate together.
