Ingredients

Salmon

  • 4 7 oz. salmon filets
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoon diced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Pineapple Salsa

  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 chopped small jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1

Start with the Pineapple Salsa. In a medium bowl, mix the diced pineapple, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, fresh lime juice and fresh lemon juice. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2

Moving on to the Salmon. First, clean and oil your grill. Then, heat it to 500 degrees F.

Step 3

Generously season the meat-side of your salmon filets with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Place the salmon filets seasoned-side-down on your grill. Cook them for about 5 minutes. Then flip them with a spatula. Continue cooking the salmon until each one reaches an internal temperature of about 145 degrees F.

Step 5

While your salmon is cooking, add the olive oil and diced garlic into a sauté pan over medium heat on the stove. Let simmer until the garlic starts to brown.

Step 6

Add the fresh spinach to the sauté pan and cook it for about 1 minute or until it wilts. Then, season the spinach with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from heat and set it aside.

Step 7

Once your salmon is grilled to your liking, remove the filets from the grill. Then remove and discard the skin.

Step 8

Divide your spinach into 4 portions and place each portion on a separate plate. Add a salmon filet on top of each portion. Then, top each filet with your pineapple salsa and teriyaki sauce. Then, dig in.
