This Roasted Salmon recipe is simple marinated in pineapple and lemon juice.  Then it’s covered with spices and roasted in the oven.  The result:  a delicious, tender salmon with great flavor!  I’m going to call it family-friendly, since it was a big hit with my own family.

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes + marinating time

Cook Time: 12 minutes

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice (or 2 small cans)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (or juice from 1 lemon)
  • Four 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • lemon slices, optional
  1. Combine pineapple juice, lemon juice and salmon fillets in a large zip bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 11x7-inch dish with nonstick spray.
  3. Remove fish from bag- drizzle a small amount of the marinade onto the bottom of the prepared pan and discard the rest. Combine sugar and next 5 ingredients (sugar through cinnamon) in a bowl. Rub over fish; place in the baking dish.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork (timing will depend on the thickness of your salmon). Serve with lemon slices, if desired.

    This was great. My family loved it. Paired it with sweet potatoes with pineapple chunks and side of green beans. Definitely having this again.
