Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon

Monday, May 7, 2018
Salmon has always been to me a required taste. This Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon has a unique and delicious Asian flavor and still healthy. The taste is rich in fresh pineapple that cooks up into a delicious glaze. Fresh lemon gives it just that right balance and this recipe is what made me a salmon lover. I have had it several different ways but this puts it over the top for me and a keeper I make often. One of my favorite ways to top off a healthy salad!

The Healthiest Way to Get Omega Oil

I love the fact that salmon is full of healthy proteins, vitamins and minerals. It is an excellent source for your for your heart, hair, skin. The omega 3 fatty oils reputation are said to be a valuable "brain food". The idea for eating fish that is healthy for your heart like salmon was discovered way back in the 1970's and through the 1980's when studies were shown to have less heart disease in the Arctic and Greenland Region where salmon was in high consumption in their diets.

This Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon is a delicious way to get all the benefits salmon has in it. I love eating healthy and when it taste great that's a bonus! Even the kids love this version. You can add less sweetness and spices and make it all natural.

I prefer a little honey added, so just a little sweetness to my recipe. You can adapt this to how your family likes it. I have also used peaches instead of pineapple which is shown in the foil packet on the grill. That's another delicious recipe.
You can also make your own teriyaki sauce homemade.

When I made salmon for the first time, I just made it with lemon, butter and dill weed. It's another delicious way to enjoy salmon. Then I started experimenting with Asian flavors like this one. It's always a big hit with everyone.

I also love it smoked. If you have never had it smoked it is a desired taste. I had purchased a smoke for my son at Christmas for him and his family and he has made it smoked several times. It's great on top of salad.

I just love salmon on top of my salad, it really compliments the salad and a nice change from having grilled chicken all the time. Salmon no matter which way it's prepared is a great addition to leafy greens, tomatoes and another way to get more health benefits when serving.

I have one more suggestion that goes a long way especially at a picnic outdoor gathering. I like to use this recipe in small pieces and make kabobs. They are so easy. Just thread the salmon on wooden skewers with pineapple, alternating every other one and brush with the sauce.

You can grill in packets or bake in parchment. They are a fun way to serve and you can easily use them on top of a salad they look super pretty on top of salads! You can even add pepper slices for more color.

I am sure you will get creative with side dishes. If you're watching carbs then you will want to stick to some steamed or roasted vegetables. Any kind of broccoli or roasted brussels sprouts go famously with this dish.

If you don't watch carbs then you can make white rice as a side dish. When I write a recipe I like to give suggestions but only you know for sure what your family will love. So adapt away! This Pineapple Teriyaki salmon is a favorite here and I sure hope it will be your new favorite soon!

Pineapple teriyaki is a great idea. I think I'll give it a try without any extra sweetener and maybe on tofu too. Thanks so much.

I love versatile the teriyaki sauce can be - does justice to chicken or fish. I think salmon really does pair so well with this sauce. The touch of pineapple must make it wonderful. Sounds so refreshing.

This looks so good! Pineapple and teriyaki is such a great combination, I have never thought to use it on salmon but it makes perfect sense! Love that you added the health benefits too :)

We certainlly like teriyaki and the sweetness of pineapple would give the salmon another layer of flavor. We enjoy our salmon and this would make a great variation.
