Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple, divided
  • 1 knob fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 sprig fresh mint or basil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 salmon filets (about 4-6 oz each)

Instructions
 

  • For the Pineapple Teriyaki Sauce: In a blender, add just 1 cup of the pineapple, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil and puree until smooth.
  • Dice the remaining pineapple. Mince the fresh mint or basil. Combine these two ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a large sauté or frying pan over medium high heat and swirl in the olive oil. When hot, add the salmon filets.
  • Cook each side of the salmon for approximately 2-3 minutes or until there is a nice crust but the inside is still just barely raw.
  • Pour in the teriyaki sauce to the pan and simmer for one minute, spooning the hot mixture all over the salmon.
  • Top with the fresh diced pineapple and mint. Serve immediately.
