[I know this was last week’s mystery basket but Jessie definitely deserves to win! 1st, she was the only entry and 2nd this looks amazing! So Jessie, in my eyes you’re 2/3. This makes you our Cook’s Mission champion so far. 🙂 ]

Leeky Salmon with Sweet Grapefruit Sauce

1 pound salmon
1 leek, thoroughly cleaned and sliced thin
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp grapefruit zest
1 Tbsp grapefruit juice
Just keep the rest of the grapefruit, too
2 tsp honey
Salt and pepper

Cook the salmon by your favorite method. Peter cooked our salmon in his homemade sous-vide setup.

For the non-Peter cook, I recommend broiling the salmon with a little olive oil and thyme on top, or using this little salmon trick.

While the salmon is cooking, prepare the leeks by placing them into a saucepan of boiling water for 2 minutes, then draining them and plunging them into an ice bath (or cold water like I did, if you don’t have ice).

Whisk together the olive oil, zest, juice, honey, and salt and pepper. Arrange a few leeks on the salmon and pour the sauce over all. Place a grapefruit slice or two next to the fish (in place of the typical lemon wedge) and serve with a snooty upturned nose and a French accent.
