Grilled Salmon Fillets with Pineapple Mint Mango Salsa

Serves 6

A hollowed-out pineapple half makes a festive serving bowl for this fruity, refreshing salsa.

Pineapple Mint Mango Salsa

  • 2 cups chopped fresh pineapple (1/2 medium pineapple)
  • 1 ½ cups peeled, chopped, fresh mango (1 medium mango)
  • ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1½ tablespoons minced fresh pineapple mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Grilled Salmon Fillets

  • 1½ pounds salmon fillets
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh pineapple mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pineapple mint leaves for garnish (optional)
  1. Combine the salsa ingredients at least several hours or as long as 2 days before serving; cover and refrigerate.
  2. Pat the salmon dry. Mix the salt, pepper and pineapple mint together, and sprinkle the mixture on both sides of the salmon.
  3. Pour the olive oil in a nonstick skillet or griddle and heat it on medium high. Sauté the salmon for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness, or until done (the flesh should just be opaque—do not overcook).
  4. Serve the hot salmon with the salsa. Garnish with fresh pineapple mint if desired.
