We really enjoyed this fish served with Southwestern Fruit Salad. Although this recipe serves 2 - it is very easily doubled or adjusted depending on the number you are serving/amount of fish you are using. Recipe source: local newspaper
- 1⁄2 cup crushed pineapple in juice
- 1 lime, juice and zest of, grated
- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar (I used spenda brown sugar blend)
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 lb salmon fillet, cut into 2 6-8 ounce portions (I used 1 pound of salmon cut into 4 portions to feed 3 people)
- In a measuring cup or small bowl combine first 6 ingredients (pineapple w/ juice - salt); set aside for 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
- Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and then sprayed with Pam.
- Place fish fillets in pan skin side down leaving at least 1 inch between them.
- Top each fillet with pineapple mixture, evenly coating the top of the fish.
- Bake for 10 minutes per inch of fish thickness or until fish is cooked through but not dry.
- If topping is still moiste place fish under broiler for a minute or so or until excess moisture evaporates and fish starts color.
The flavors of this topping are nice with the salmon. It's light and fresh tasting. I've paired it with Recipe #63446 for an out of the ordinary dinner. Thanks ellie!
My BF wanted to give 4 stars because he found this a bit sweet but I loved it so it's 5 stars :) I liked the little heat of the red pepper flakes. The taste of lime zest and juice in it makes this dish wonderful. Thanks Ellie :) Made for Newest Zaar tag.
This recipe makes for very good tasting salmon! The combo of pineapple, lime & red pepper was a new twist for me, & it was great! We eat salmon 6-7 times a month, & this makes for a nice variation! Thanks for the posting! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe Cooking Game]
