You won't believe how tender and flavorful salmon can get until you've grilled it on a pineapple.

Salmon on Pineapple Planks

serving time4


  • 2 large pineapples

  • 8 ounces salmon, divided into 4 pieces

  • 1/4 cup lime juice

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup cilantro


  1. Make the marinade: In a small bowl, combine lime juice, olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, cilantro, and salt. Place salmon in a glass dish and cover with marinade. Allow to marinate for up to 1 hour in the fridge. Reserve marinade for grilling.

  2. Assemble and grill the salmon: Slice the pineapples into eight planks. Place the marinated salmon on the flank of pineapple and top with a few sprigs of cilantro. Top with another flank of pineapple and wrap with kitchen twine. Place salmon on warm grill and cook for 5 minutes. Flip over and remove the twine, as the salmon and pineapple should be secure. Baste with remaining marinade and cook for another 5 minutes until salmon is tender and pineapple is slightly charred. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
