Grapefruit Grilled Salmon

Well, today was my first time using the grill at my apartment and I would have to call this one a huge success.

I bought a lot (okay, way too many) grapefruits at the store this week, along with some wild caught salmon. And for some reason, I decided the combine the two. And I am glad I did. I only wish I had thought to add grated ginger! If you are going to make this, I highly recommend that addition.
