Fish are supposed to be friends, not food, right? Wrong! When living on an island surround by an ocean full of fish and an island with the sweetest pineapple I have ever tasted, it was only a matter of time before the two would meet in my kitchen (and in my belly).
You will need:
1 Salmon fillet (4-8oz)
3 tsp lemon juice (fresh lemon or bottled lemon jucie)
3 tsp Teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup diced pineapple
a dash of black pepper
Aluminum foil sheet
I am a huge fan of “foil packets” they save time and dish washing. No pans to clean up and you can pull the ultimate lazy (no judgement here) and put the foil packet directly on the plate, open it and eat directly off of it. Or eat it like a normal person, but how boring is that?
Make a foil packet out of a sheet of aluminum foil.
Pour in the lemon juice and teriyaki sauce. Place in the fish, sprinkle with pepper and add the pineapple. You won’t need salt in the recipe because the Teriyaki sauce already has quite a bit of saltiness.
Roll it up! Either let it sit and marinate in the in fridge overnight or if you don’t have that amount of time, a few hours would be best! The longer it sits in the marinade the more potent the flavor.
Place the foil packet in a 350F oven and cook for about 20-30 minutes. If you want a well-done fish cook it longer, if you want it more of a medium-medium well, then cook a little less. It is about your preference. If you marinate it overnight, then the grill would be a delicious change of pace. Grill the pineapple and the salmon…so good.
