This broiled pineapple salmon is a breeze to make - a no fuss sweet and savory dinner with no clean up!
I cannot believe we have 2 more weeks of school and the summer holidays are upon us already. In the last month, we have just been busy with life. We can all relate to a busy life. The good news is, this busyness is a good kind of busyness, a choice. I got to volunteer as a chaperone at my kids' school field trips and spend a really fun day with them individually. We also kick-started our new home building process (we are so excited), and along with our usual after-school activities, we are also preparing for Bella's first upcoming piano recital. These are some fun times so I reckon I should say we are attempting to live a full life. And not forgetting Kian taking over for 4 days while I went on a girls' trip to Nashville for some girlie fun.
It is possible to live a well paced & present life and we should allow ourselves to slow down and live a full life. That is why I love quick and easy recipes for dinners that are still delicious. And might I add that there is literally no clean up? So, instead of slogging in the kitchen to make a meal and cleaning up after the meal, I am able to be present at the dinner table with my family and not have to rush through the meal.
Take this Broiled Pineapple Salmon recipe for example. The flavors are so vibrant and palatable with just a handful of ingredients and preparing it is such a breeze. I definitely got the thumbs up from the family and had made this recipe multiple times already. I definitely recommend you bookmark this recipe.
Broiled Pineapple Salmon
by Miss Crumbs A Lot, adapted from Delish
8 slices of Fresh Pineapple
1 Salmon Filet (about 1-1.5 lbs & I used Sockeye)
Salt & Pepper
3 tbsp Butter (melted)
3 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce (I used Lee Kum Kee)
2 tbsp Cilantro (chopped)
3 cloves Garlic (chopped)
2 tsp Ginger (grated)
2 tsp Sesame Oil
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Green Onions (thinly sliced)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking tray with foil and coat with cooking spray.
2. Place pineapple slices in an even layer in the middle of the tray and bake for 20 minutes in the middle rack.
3. Season the salmon filet with salt and pepper and place it on top of the pineapple slices.
4. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, sweet chili sauce, chopped cilantro, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and crushed red pepper flakes. Brush it evenly all over the salmon.
5. Broil on high on the second highest rack for 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of your fish and doneness preference. This should charr the pineapples and fish slightly and keep the middle of the filet medium rare and pink.
6. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion and serve over rice, if desired.
