DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients for the marinade, reserving 3 tablespoons. Pour the marinade over the salmon, place in refrigerator and allow to marinade for 1 hour.
  • Approximately 10 to 15 minutes before placing the salmon on the grill, began preparing the rice by heating the 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium saucepan. Stir in chopped onion and cook for 3 minutes; add rice and sauté an additional minute.
  • Add pineapple, pineapple juice, water, and salt; bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Fluff with fork and stir in chopped cilantro.
  • Place salmon over medium heat on gas grill or over charcoal, cook until fish flakes easily, turning once; approximately 10 to 12 minutes total.
  • While salmon is cooking, prepare the sauce by bringing to a boil the white wine, sugar, ginger and lime juice. Reduce to 3/4 cup; this should take about 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Brush the sliced onions with the reserved marinade and grill until done, turning as needed.
  • Mix cornstarch with a small amount of water until smooth, whisk into wine along with butter. Cook 1 minute or until thick, add scallion and keep warm.
  • To serve, divide rice onto 4 serving plates, top with cooked fish, spoon sauce over and top with grilled onions.
