Maple-Glazed Salmon with Pineapple

Real Simple DECEMBER 2005

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Other:10 Minutes


  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cups cooked white rice


Heat broiler.

Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place the salmon in a foil-lined 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper. Slice the peel from the pineapple half and cut it lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter into 1/2-inch-thick triangles. Scatter the pineapple and jalapeño around the salmon. Brush the salmon with the syrup mixture. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily when pricked with a fork and the inside is the same color throughout. Serve the salmon and pineapple with the rice and drizzle with the remaining glaze, if desired.

Tip: Slice the other half of the pineapple left over from this recipe, brush it with maple syrup, and broil until it bubbles. Serve with ice cream.
