Salmon Fillet with Caramelized Pineapple
Serves: Serves 2
  • 2x 175g fresh salmon fillets with skin
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • sprinkle salt and pepper
  • 1 cup (175g | 6.2oz) fresh pineapple chunks
  • ¼ large orange bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped red onion
  1. Before you start cooking your fish, make sure that all your ingredients are ready to go: pineapple, bell pepper and red onion chopped and all the ingredients for the sauce mixed together well in a small bowl or measuring cup.
  2. Then, place one of your oven racks to the top position and set the oven to broil.
  3. Heat a teaspoon or so of cooking fat or oil in a heavy bottomed skillet (cast iron preferred) set over very high heat.
  4. Brush the fish fillets with a little bit of toasted sesame oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Once the pan is scorching hot, carefully place the fillets in, skin side down; cook for about 2 minutes, or until the skin gets really crispy. Remove the fillets to an oven safe baking dish and place them right under the boiler until the top becomes golden and crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, place the skillet back over the heat source and add the pineapple, bell pepper and red onions to it. Cook, over high heat still, until the pineapple is caramelized, about 2 minutes. Add the sauce and continue cooking until it's reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 30 seconds.
  7. Transfer to a serving plate and top with the salmon fillets; serve immediately.
