The Chopped challenge this week was to use grapefruit in a savory dish. In order to bring out the semisweet-and-sour flavor of the fruit we made a sweet-and-sour sauce to pair with poached salmon. Chopped Basket Ingredient: Grapefruit

Ingredients

Directions

Juice 1 grapefruit into a bowl. Cut the peel and pith from the other grapefruit. Remove the flesh from the membranes with a sharp knife, adding any juice to the juice in the bowl. Reserve the grapefruit segments.

Boil the reserved juice, honey and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small saucepan until reduced by half and slightly syrupy, 4 to 6 minutes.

Toss the grapefruit segments with the shallots, oil, parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Bring a large, straight-sided skillet with 4 cups of well-salted water to a simmer; the water should cover the salmon. Add the salmon to the skillet and remove from the heat. Let the salmon cook in the hot water until just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.

Transfer the salmon to paper towels and pat dry. Place on serving plates. Drizzle the salmon with the sauce and top with the grapefruit salad.
