This Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Jalapeño Salsa is a fish lover’s dream — it’s super fresh, perfectly spicy-sweet and is ready in about 30 minutes.
We love fish! It’s something we have on a pretty regular basis, and I make this one in particular for us all the time.

It’s easy, quick, and super flavorful! I mean, adding fresh fruit to just about anything is a win! But, adding it to fish is amazing! Plus, with the addition of honey it completely seals the deal.
Again, I’ve experimented with a number of different honeys and at the end of the day, Beeyond The Hive Raw Wildflower Honey, is the ultimate best. It’s very floral, thick and stays put when drizzled on the fish. (You can really taste it even after it has been grilled — the slightly sweet, charred edges ARE EVERYTHING)! So be sure to check out this Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Jalapeño Salsa. I really think you will love it.

This Charred Pineapple and Jalapeño Salmon is probably one of the most flavor and texture packed dishes you can make with just a handful of ingredients. I mean, with just some fruit and jalapenos, a bit of honey and oil to help things along, and a sweet chili sauce, this salmon is truly so easy. To start things off, you want to get those pineapple rings and jalapenos all nice and charred. Simply get a skillet super hot with a bunch of oil, then go in with the charring. You want everything to be evenly spaced out so it gets a nice char, meaning you may have to do this in batches. Really, though, with just a few minutes on each side, your pineapple should have nice black marks on it, and the jalapeños should start to cook down. Nothing crazy, but this releases so much flavor.

Ingredients:

4 salmon fillets
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
2 tbsp jalapeños, sliced
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Green onions, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

Prepare Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, lime juice, minced garlic, and minced ginger.
Marinate Salmon: Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon, ensuring each fillet is well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Cook Salmon: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Remove the salmon from the marinade and season with salt and pepper. Reserve the marinade.
Sear Salmon: Place the salmon fillets in the skillet, skin side down. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the salmon is cooked through and has a nice sear. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
Make Sauce: In the same skillet, add the reserved marinade and bring it to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.
Add Pineapple and Jalapeños: Stir in the pineapple chunks and sliced jalapeños. Cook for another 2 minutes until heated through.
Combine: Return the cooked salmon to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the fillets to coat them in the sticky, sweet, and spicy sauce.
Garnish and Serve: Garnish with chopped green onions. Serve hot with your favorite side dish.
Enjoy: Relish the sweet and spicy flavors of your Honey Pineapple Jalapeño Salmon!
