Salmon with grapefruit sauce

Irresistible salmon Gordon Ramsay. I would never believe how yummy can a salmon with grapefruit sauce be.

Preparation time 10 minutes .. Kooking 15 minutes


  • 4 skinned salmon fillets (about 120g each)
  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 1 batch hollandaise sauce
  • 8 large leaves fresh basil, finely shredded
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • ½ small onion, sliced
  • 3 tbsp wine vinegar


Top and tail the grapefruit, then slice off the peel and pith. Cut through the membranes to release fine segments. Catch these in a bowl, along with any juice. Stir the segments into the hollandaise along with a few tbsp of juice and the basil. Set aside.

Boil 1 litre water in a wide shallow pan with the herbs, onion, vinegar and seasoning for 5 mins. Put in the salmon, pour over extra water to cover and poach gently until just firm, about 7 mins. Remove and drain, then place on plates. Spoon over the sauce and serve with a green salad and potatoes.
