Baked Pineapple Salmon
Giving the salmon a quick broil at the end of cooking gives the marinade a chance to caramelize—it's too good. Just make sure to keep a close eye on it, so you don't overcook the salmon! Two to three minutes is all you need under a hot broiler.
• Prep time: 10 minutes
• Cook time: 55 minutes
• Yield: Serves 6
• Cooking spray, for pan
• 8 pineapple rings, fresh or canned
• 1 large salmon fillet (about 3 lbs.)
• Kosher salt
• Freshly ground black pepper
• 3 tbsp. melted butter
• 3 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
• 2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro
• 3 garlic cloves, minced
• 2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
• 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
• 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
• Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
• Thinly sliced green onions, for garnish
• Lime wedges, for serving
- Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and grease with cooking spray. In the center of the foil, lay pineapple slices in an even layer.
- Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper and place on top of pineapple slices.
- In a small bowl, whisk together butter, chili sauce, cilantro, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Brush all over salmon fillet.
- Bake until the salmon is cooked through, about 25 minutes. Switch the oven to broil, and broil for 2 minutes, or until fish is slightly golden. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions and serve with lime wedges.
