Chipotle Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Avocado Salsa
 
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • Pineapple Avocado Salsa
  • 1 pineapple, cut into a small dice
  • ½ small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 medium to large jalapeƱo, finely diced (remove the seeds and ribs if you don't like heat)
  • 1 avocado, cut into a small dice
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped (use parsley if you don't care for cilantro)
  • zest and juice of 2 large limes
  • 2-3 teaspoons honey (depending on the sweetness of your pineapple)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Salmon
  • 4 portions of salmon
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder (use less if you don't want it too spicy)
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use, or go ahead break out the chips.
  2. Preheat your grill on high heat.
  3. On a baking sheet without sides, create a "tray" large enough for your salmon pieces out of heavy duty aluminum foil. Place the salmon on the tray.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the chipotle powder, sugar, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture between the four pieces of salmon, making sure to cover them well.
  5. Slide the "tray" onto the grill and close the lid of the grill. Reduce the heat to medium and allow to cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on how hot your grill gets.
  6. When done, carefully slide the tray back onto your baking sheet.
  7. Serve as is, or with the salsa on top!
