Baked Pineapple Whole Fillet 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

        Prep time: 10 minutes
        Cook time: 45 minutes
        Yield: Serves 6


        kosher salt
    •    Cooking spray
    •    3 tbsps melted butter
    •    3 cloves garlic, minced
    •    Lime wedges, for serving
    •    2 tsps toasted sesame oil
    •    2 tsps freshly grated ginger
    •    freshly ground black pepper
    •    1 large salmon fillet, about 3 lbs
    •    3 tbsps freshly chopped cilantro
    •    1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    •    Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
    •    17 x pineapple rings, fresh or canned


  1. 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.
  2. Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper and place on top of pineapple slices.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, chili sauce, cilantro, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Brush all over salmon fillet.
  4. 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.
