Author: The Chef
Recipe type: Dessert
- 2 large pineapples
- 8 ounces salmon, divided into 4 pieces
- ¼ cup lime juice
- ½ cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cilantro
- 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.
- 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.
