  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • 3tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1tablespoon honey
  • 1tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 4cups mixed salad greens
  • 4cups baby arugula leaves
  • 1 avocadopitted and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1/2cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted
  1. Wash salmon and pat dry. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet; place salmon, skin side up, in pan and sear for 1 minute. Turn fillet over; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add white wine and garlic to pan; cover and poach until salmon is cooked through, 6–10 minutes.
  2. While salmon is poaching, combine remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, grapefruit juice, honey, and basil in a small bowl. Whisk to mix well, and season with salt and pepper. Combine salad greens and arugula in a large bowl and toss with just enough dressing to lightly coat leaves.
  3. Divide salad among four plates. Top each with 1/4 of the cooked salmon. Arrange avocado slices and blackberries on top of each salad. Sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle lightly with additional dressing. Serve immediately.
