  • Sprinkle the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet. Place the salmon fillets in the pan skin side up if skinned, and saute for about 4 or 5 minutes at a medium-high setting.
  • Flip and cook for the same amount of time on the other side.
  • Remove the salmon from the skillet and set aside for now.
  • Turn the heat to a medium setting. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the skillet along with the diced onion. Cook for about 5 minutes, until softened.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle in the dill and rosemary during the last minute.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low. Scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan and add the grapefruit juice and zest, and white wine, stirring it into the seasoned mixture.
  • Bring to a simmer as you stir for 3 to 5 minutes. The mixture should reduce slightly.
  • Pour in the cream slowly stirring constantly. Let the sauce simmer gently and thicken for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the salmon back to the pan using your spatula to cover them in sauce.
  • Allow the fish to heat thoroughly and serve immediately.
