The buttery cod and the sweet tart grapefruit pair to make a delicious and easy summer salad!
Remember back when I made those amazing Chicken, Rice, and Mango Wraps? One of the things I said was that it made more dressing than you needed. That dressing was entirely too good to let it just live the rest of it’s days shoved back in the corner of my fridge. Am I the only one with about 6 or 7 mason jars of various homemade dressings on the bottom shelf of their fridge? Most were made for a recipe and I put the leftovers in my fridge, planning on using them later on something else. Well, I wasn’t going to let this wonderful dressing with it’s earthy hints from the sesame oil and sweet heat from the ginger go to waste!
I remembered reading about a cod and grapefruit salad from Eating Well. That combination sounded like the perfect backdrop for the ginger dressing – and it was! There really isn’t a recipe for this, but here is what I did. I used a mixture of lettuce, torn into bite size pieces and divided amongst two plates. Then I peeled and sectioned one grapefruit and divided it between the plates and drizzled a little of the dressing on the top. Took some lovely cod fillets and pan sauteed them in a little olive oil, until they were nicely browned and cooked through about 2 minutes per side and then plated that on top. Garnished with a few snips of fresh chives. So good!!! Seriously – go make my chicken wraps and then make this salad – it would also be good with shrimp instead of the cod.
