When I go grocery shopping in the winter, the bright colors of the citrus fruits just seem to leap out at me! The contrast of the vibrant oranges, limes, lemons and grapefruit against the dull gray of winter, call out to me: Buy me! Buy me!

So I did.

Cold weather brings about the peak citrus season and that is what inspired me to create today’s recipe: Roasted Salmon with Blood Orange Salsa.

This dish is healthy, delicious, and perfect for a quick weeknight meal.

Fresh wild salmon is roasted simply and topped with a beautiful citrus salsa, which can be made the day before to save time.

Salmon is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat, due to the high levels of Omega-3s (which are fatty acids needed for a healthy heart), and Vitamin D (a vitamin that most Americans are deficient of). Combined with the Vitamin C in the salsa, this recipe can’t be beat!

Don’t forget to store all your citrus fruits at room temperature so that they can produce the most juice!
