Recipe Monday - Fruity Salmon with a Kick

The best thing about fish and steak when you can afford them, is that they consistently provide a gourmet meal for the family, and yet take just ten minutes to cook.

I have tried all kinds of fruity sauces for my salmon, but there was always something missing. This recipe provides that something...just a little kick to bring out the flavors of both the fish and the sauce. So, without further ado...


Pineapple Jalapeno Salmon:




  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple
  • 1 jalapeno


Directions
  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  2. Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  3. Heat broiler. Place the salmon in a foil-lined 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper.
  4. Cut the pineapple lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter into ½-inch-thick triangles. Scatter the pineapple and jalapeƱo around the salmon.
  5. Brush the salmon with the syrup mixture and broil for 5 to 7 minutes or until it flakes easily and is the same color throughout.
  6. Serve the salmon and pineapple with the rice and drizzle with the remaining glaze, if desired.



The peppers offset the pineapple and maple sauce perfectly. This is on our family's favorite list now. Of course, the kids get fish sticks. There's no accounting for taste, I guess.
