Allow the mixture to marinate 30 minutes before serving, but not longer as the grapefruit will ‘overcook’ the fish. You will notice that the salmon will become more opaque as it marinates. I like to serve it in individual parfait glasses for an elegant presentation and garnish with the remaining tablespoon of cilantro and bits of zest. This dish pairs well with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

Soup fights hunger because it’s filling and low in calories. This is the perfect summer/spring soup made in a blender. Fresh and light, gazpacho can be packed for lunch in a thermos, for an impromptu picnic or even for a day on the beach. Add cooked shrimp to round it out for a fast, late-night dinner when you don’t have time to cook.
