Pineapple Salsa Salmon

This is a perfect recipe for the summer time. It is light, refreshing, healthy, and easy to prepare. If you are trying to be very healthy you can opt for the wild salmon. If you want to save a couple of bucks you can get the farm raised salmon. At my market, there is about a $4 difference a pound. 

Pineapple Salsa Salmon Recipe
  1. • Salmon
  2. • Can of pineapple
  3. • Jalapeno
  4. • Red onion
  5. • Green onion
  6. • Cilantro
  7. • Lemon or lime juice (optional, I like to use some of the juice from the pineapple instead to make it sweeter)
  8. • Optional: tomato or red bell pepper
  1. Place the salmon in a zip lock bag or marinating container with ¼ of the juice and pineapple from the can. Place in fridge and let marinate. I do this in the morning and let it sit all day.
  2. Chop and dice the remainder of the ingredients and place in a small bowl. How much of each is usually a personal preference. I usually only use ½ of the jalapeno, half of a small red onion, generous with the cilantro, the rest of the pineapple in the can, little of the rest. I also sometimes add some of the pineapple juice in to make it a bit sweeter.
  3. Place salmon and juices from the marinade in a foil lined baking dish and bake at 350 for approximately 15 minutes. Remove and plate placing salsa on top.
