With easy preparation and incredible flavor, this dish is on the short list for weeknight meals that hit all my criteria: fast, healthy, filling and over-the-top tasty!
  • 1.5 cups pineapple chunks canned in juice
  • .5 cups white-rice vinegar
  • .5 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 teaspoons black pepper divided
  • 2 lbs wild Alaskan or Washington salmon fresh
  • .5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon ground
  • 1 tablespoon coriander ground
  • 1 tablespoon allspice
  • 1 tablespoon cloves ground
  • 1 tablespoon ginger ground
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  1. Combine pineapple (drained), vinegar, curry powder, and garlic clove (peeled and minced) in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Place pineapple mixture in a blender, and process until smooth. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the black pepper (freshly cracked works best). Set aside.
  3. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut into 6 pieces, approximately 5 ounces each, if necessary. Sprinkle salt evenly over fish.
  4. Combine cinnamon, coriander, remaining 3 teaspoons of black pepper, allspice, cloves and ginger. Rub flesh side of each fish fillet with spice mixture.
  5. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add salmon, spice (flesh) side down, and cook about 4 minutes on each side or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately with pineapple sauce spooned over top.
