  • 2 lbs salmon filets
  • 2 tbs soy sauce low sodium or liquid aminos
  • 2 tbs sesame oil toasted has more flavor but either is fine
  • 1 tbs garlic minced fine
  • 1 pineapple peeled, cored, sliced into at least 6 slices
  • 5 scallions finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped


  1. Put the oven on 400 degrees (baking). In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, and garlic and brush onto top and bottom of salmon filets and both sides of the pineapple slices. Arrange the salmon filets and pineapple slices on a baking pan and place in the oven. Bake for about fifteen minutes and then switch oven to high broil. (Baking first allows the food to cook through without very-charring.) Broil for about five minutes. Check the salmon for doneness by taking a butter knife and see if it flakes the fish at its thickest point.  Remove and sprinkle with the scallions and cilantro. Enjoy!
