Pineapple Baked Salmon
This has been on my mind for a while now. It’s been teething and gnawing away like an old dog with a fresh bone. It’s trying to be released but I don’t want to give it the idea that being ignored is acceptable. So step right in here, this is just what you’re looking for!
Pineapple Baked Salmon
- 1/4 cup prepared browning sauce
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1 pound salmon fillet
- 1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup prepared browning sauce
Browning sauce is a mixture of sugar, flour and some form of fat. It can be bought in the store or made at home using your favorite recipe.
Browning sauce is used to flavor meat and fish before they’re baked, as well as other dishes like fried chicken wings and onion rings.
1/2 cup pineapple juice
You can use any type of juice in this recipe. I like using pineapple juice because it’s a great substitute for lemon juice, which is often used in baking recipes. The main difference between the two is that pineapple has more vitamin C than lemons and also contains other vitamins, including B6 (pyridoxine) and potassium.
1 pound salmon fillet, skin on
- Pat the fish dry with paper towels and season it with salt and pepper. Transfer to a baking sheet or roasting pan lined with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup).
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place salmon skin side down in hot pan, lower heat to 300 degrees F, cook 20 minutes or until golden brown but don’t overcook it! You’ll be searing its flesh for flavor later on in this recipe so make sure you don’t let the inside of your fish go dry before turning it over for another side of cooking time—which will also help protect against overcooking since there won’t be much liquid left in there after roasting.*
- Remove from oven and set aside; keep warm while preparing other components of this dish:
1/4 cup of white wine
- The first thing that comes to mind when you think about wine is its health benefits. It’s packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that make it a healthy option for your body.
- Wine is also an excellent source of potassium (a mineral known for regulating blood pressure), iron and zinc, as well as vitamin B6—which helps support your immune system.*
