I have decided that I am going to will spring to start. Sort of like a rain dance during a drought. Except I am going to will the spring by making bright, light meals that beg for it.

Like this Grilled Fish with Grapefruit Avocado Salsa 

This meal was “Party In Your Mouth” good.

Season Salmon.

I think Tilapia, or a “thinner” whiter fish would have been good with this too.

During the summer, I will make this on the grill instead of roasting.

As a short cut, I used these instead of a whole grapefruit. Slacker.

The flavors of sweet and tangy grapefruit and lime juices went together so well with the jalapeno, onion and cilantro!

Gently fold it all together.
