Ingredients
  • 1  pounds of salmon with skin on, cut into 4 fillets
  • Marinade
  • ½ cup fresh pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ inch fresh ginger, peeled
  • 2-3 garlic cloves (2 large or 3 small)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • Salsa
  • 2 cups pineapple, chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
Directions
  1. Place salmon fillets into a ziploc type bag and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine all marinade ingredients and blend together.  Once blended, add cilantro.
  3. Add marinade to bag with salmon and refrigerate from 1 - 24 hours.  (The longer you can marinade, the more flavor the salmon will absorb.)
  4. While salmon is marinading, Mix together all salsa ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat.  Bring to a low boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.  Cool.  Once cooled, sprinkle cilantro on top then refrigerate until ready to use.
  5. Preheat broiler.  Set top rack into the top slot.
  6. Generously spray a broiler pan with cooking spray.
  7. Place salmon on a broiler pan, skin side down. Broil 7 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
  8. Serve with salsa spoon on the top along with a drizzle of the juices.
Notes
You can substitute canned pineapple for fresh but be sure to use the one packed in natural juice and drain.
