[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] Salmon With Grapefruit Sauce - 8g Carbs, 1g Fiber


Salmon With Grapefruit Sauce - 8g Carbs, 1g Fiber

{Remember grapefruit does not mix with some medications! Take care, Gloria}

From: New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes, 1st Edition American Diabetes Association
Salmon definitely tastes better the more simply it's prepared. Slightly sweet yet tart, grapefruit juice intensifies the flavor of the sauce and also helps keep the fish from drying out. Garnish the fish with ruby red grapefruit segments mixed with chopped fresh basil to complement the beautiful orange-pink color of the fish.

One whole grapefruit equals 2 fruit exchanges or 1/2 fruit exchange per serving.
