Honey Baked Salmon Recipe (with Pineapple Salsa)

honey baked salmon recipe

Bought a huge pineapple to make Pineapple Chicken earlier but wasn’t able to use all up so I made a pineapple salsa with the leftovers as a side dish to go with my baked salmon lunch. Flavours worked perfectly in this dish. While the honey baked salmon tasted more on the sweet side, the tangy pineapple salsa gave it a nice refreshing note. I served the salmon and salsa over a bed of mashed steamed sweet potato just to keep the dish healthy and lower in GI. Try it!

    Hi Geri, the salmon appears to be a bit charred on the edges. I hope you trim the charred bits off before eating.

  • Wow I love salmon but rarely make it. We also enjoy salsa. Have you ever thought about using Lemon Oil from Young Living essential oils instead of the lemon juice? We will sometimes use essential oils in our cooking or in our drinks :). It looks really delicious.
