Baked Pineapple Asian Salmon

I'm always trying new ways to make salmon because we eat it at least once a week and this recipe is my new favorite!  The sauce is sweet with a little spice, it carmelizes onto the salmon making it so flavorful.   I first saw a video for this recipe on delish.com that came up on my Facebook page.  It's easy to make, easy cleanup (cover pan with foil or parchment paper) and delish!

When broiled the sauce will caramelize and this is why you'll want to use foil.  Easy cleanup!

This is the Sweet Chili Sauce that I use.

12-16 pineapple slices, fresh (3-4 slices for each piece of salmon)
4 portions of salmon fillet (skin off)
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp. melted butter
3 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro
cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1/8 -1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onion, for garnish

Lime wedges, for serving

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. On the foil, lay 3-4 pineapple slices per each piece of salmon.
  1. Season the salmon lightly with salt and pepper and place on top of pineapple slices.
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, chili sauce, cilantro, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Brush all over the top of the salmon fillets.
  1. Bake until the salmon is cooked through, about 25 minutes. Switch the oven to broil, and broil for 2 minutes, or until fish is slightly golden. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions and serve with lime wedges.

  1. *delish.com - cooks one large (3lb) piece of salmon but I like to do individual pieces.  I think it's easier to serve, cooks more evenly, and everyone gets their own piece with 4 slices of pineapple.
