Grilled Salmon with Pineapple
by Melissa


Summertime Grillin’ is one of my favorite things to do when the weather is too hot to cook indoors.   I have been a lover of fish for as long as I can remember.  Besides being healthy for you, it’s easy to grill!  I have a new found love for grilled fruit as well.  Grilling brings out all the juices and flavor in fruit.

Salmon Steaks
Pineapple Planks (sides of the pineapple you would have thrown away after slicing it all up)
Brown Sugar
Soy Sauce
Cotton twine

Heat your grill up.
Prepare your salmon steaks.   Mixing the brown sugar (about a teaspoon) and your soy sauce (about 2 tablespoons) and pour that mixture over the salmon steaks.  

Next take two of your pineapple planks and make a “salmon sandwich”.  Tying up the salmon sandwich with cotton twine.
Grill for about 13-14 minutes on each side depending on how thick your steaks are.

The twine will most likely burn thru (BONUS TIP: you can help avoid that if you soak your twine first in water for about 30 minutes) that is fine.  Just try to keep together the “salmon sandwich” as best you can. 

After they are done – remove twine and enjoy!  The pineapple juice and citrus acid has helped to create a party on your plate!  The juices and warm pineapple coupled with the salmon is delicious!
Until Next Time – Party on and Happy Grilling!
