Sweet Pineapple Salmon

At the request of a special friend, I'm posting one of my favorite salmon recipes.  This is a great salmon recipe for those who are not great salmon lovers.  The sweetness and acidity of the pineapple eliminates much of the "fishy" flavor, leaving a mild, delicious, heart-healthy recipe.

2 8oz salmon fillets
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp bourbon (optional)
1/3 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup olive oil

  • Combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, bourbon, pepper and garlic powder in a medium bowl.  Stir to dissolve sugar.  Add the oil.
  • Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or zipper bag and pour marinade over, saving a little for basting later on.
  • Refrigerate and allow to marinate for at least an hour, longer is better.
  • Preheat barbecue or stovetop grill to medium-high heat.
  • Cook the fish for 5-7 minutes per side or until each fillet is cooked all the way through.  Regularly brush fish with the reserved marinade.
