  • 2 salmon filets, skin on 3-4 ounces each
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1/3 cup crushed pineapple (with pineapple juice)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon butter or butter alternative
  • cilantro for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place salmon filets on plate or cutting board and use paper towel to remove any extra moisture from filet. Season each filet with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and a 1/8 teaspoon of salt.
  • In a cast iron skillet or oven safe pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add salmon filets flesh side down and sear 3 minutes. Flip salmon and place salmon in oven for 15 minutes or until salmon reaches 145 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, combine pineapple, ginger and honey.
  • Remove salmon from oven and return to medium heat. Add butter and pineapple ginger mixture. Stir to combine and let reduce for 3-5 minutes. Use a spoon to coat salmon in mixture. Top with cilantro and serve.


Use more pineapple juice with the crushed pineapple if you want a stronger pineapple flavor
