Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust oven rack so it is 6 inches from heat source. Preheat broiler.
  2. From limes, grate 1/2 teaspoon peel and squeeze 3 tablespoons juice. In large bowl, stir lime peel and juice, chili sauce, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard until blended. Reserve 3 tablespoons of mixture to glaze salmon; set remainder aside.
  3. Arrange salmon on foil-lined rack in broiling pan. Spray with Pam, if desired. Place pan in oven and broil 5 minutes. Brush salmon with reserved chili-sauce mixture and broil 4-5 minutes longer or until salmon is opaque throughout.
  4. Meanwhile, peel and core pineapple, then cut into 1/2-inch chunks. (You should have about 3 cups.) Add the cut-up pineapple to bowl with the remaining chili-sauce mixture and toss to coat.
  5. To serve, divide spinach among 4 dinner plates. Top each with 1 piece salmon fillet and 3/4 cup pineapple. Drizzle pineapple juices over spinach and serve.

Easy to make and very healthy. I kept to the recipe execpt changed the serving order. It was a perfect recipe for a summer nights dinner, when a heavy dish isn't what you want. Just a fast and filling dinner, yet healthy. Only suggestion I can make is taste you pineapple, if it's not sweet then add some sweetner into the "glaze/dressing". Thanks so much for the yummy recipe TasteTester

This is one of our go-to recipes that we make every couple weeks or so. I've also made it with tilapia. To save time, I just buy a can of pineapple chunks and drain them. For extra spice, I've added a teaspoon or so of chili garlic paste to the marinade. So easy, so quick, so healthy and so delicious.
