The Recipe: Broiled Salmon with Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Slaw
Salmon might be my favorite cooked fish. Not only is it packed with Omega-3′s, but it has loads of vitamins and protein too. We don’t eat it as often as I’d like because my husband spent a summer (while he was in college) in Alaska working on a salmon fishing boat. I think he said he wanted something fun to do . . anyway, now he still can’t even look at a salmon with a straight face. Now that we have the girls and they like salmon too, he’s out numbered.
I like that Lori uses canned pineapple mixed with fresh cabbage, carrots and bell pepper for the slaw; all simple ingredients that work really well together. And I really love the sauce mixture for the salmon. I found the pineapple slaw to be really tasty and perfect with the salmon. The two paired very nicely together and this recipe is so extremely easy and quick to make! It’s perfect for a week night dinner. My only tips for this recipe: definitely try to use a pyrex baking dish or roasting pan for this because the salmon sauce will drip and you don’t want to end up with a big mess and check on your salmon! You don’t want to burn it.
The next time I make this, I’m going to double the dressing. It was wonderful and I wish I had even more to drizzle on my salmon. If you are looking for a quick, light and healthy recipe, this is it. And I am really enjoying the Recipe Girl cookbook. This really is a great one for home cooks at all levels with recipes you’ll probably see yourself cooking over and over again.
