Recipe by Brandyn Baker @blackdog_bbq


  • 2 lbs. salmon, skin attached
  • Rub of choice (or salt and pepper if desired)
  • 2 C pineapple, diced
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 3 jalapenos, diced & deseeded
  • ½ C cilantro, chopped
  • 4 small-medium limes, juiced
  • Spring mix to garnish


For the Pineapple Salsa:

  1. Combine the pineapple and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Refrigerate until ready to use. 

For the Grilled Salmon:

  1. Preheat the griddle to high (sear mode). Meanwhile, season the salmon with a rub of choice and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes. I tend to go with a blackening seasoning for fish.
  2. Once the griddle is preheated, place the fish on skin-side down and cook for 5-10 minutes. When the internal temperature registers about 135 degrees, remove the fish from the grill and turn off the heat source.

To Finish:

  1. Place a bed of spring mix on a plate. Add the salmon and top with the pineapple salsa. 
  2. Serve & enjoy!
