Citrus Marinade Stir Fry (Salmon)

This is another idea for how to cook salmon. I would have never thought of having grapefruit juice on salmon. It is really tasty. You can get the benefits from grapefruit juice too. This marinade could be used use on meat, chicken, or fish. I love being able to have salmon a new way. :) "Variety is the spice of life."

Citrus Marinade (makes enough for 1lb meat, fish, or 4 chicken breasts)

1 lb Salmon 4 fillets or other meat
1/3 C grapefruit juice or orange juice (fresh is best)
1 T dried parsley or 2 T fresh parsley
2 T fresh lemon juice or lime juice
1 T olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
2 garlic cloves minced
1/4 tsp pepper
2 T oil ( I used coconut oil) To cook fish or meat in.)
1 bag of broccoli stir fry or vegetables of your choosing
cooked brown rice* Optional would be a great addition
salt and pepper to taste


1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl, and stir until all combined. Use immediately or you can store in fridge for up to 5 days.

2. Place the fish or meat in bowl with the marinade. Let sit for at least 20 min.

3. Heat a frying pan on med. heat on the stove, put oil in pan. Let the oil melt. Then add the fish and marinade.

4. I cooked the fish on both sides. Then I added the vegetables and put on the lid and let it steam for about 10 min on med. low. Serve!


  1. Sounds great! Can't wait to try it!

  2. This looks like a really great summer meal. The fish and citrus combo sounds very refreshing. I am excited to try it out!

  3. Thank You! I hope you enjoy it! :)
