Chipotle Salmon with Grilled Pineapple

American Contemporary

Amy Angelo gave us a great recipe for spicy salmon paired with cooling grilled pineapple. This easy-to-prepare dish packs a lot of flavor. Serve with steamed rice and a fresh green vegetable.
1 pound fresh salmon or 2 salmon steak portions
1 chipotle pepper, chopped (from canned in adobo sauce)
2 teaspoons of butter
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 slices of fresh pineapple, 1/4 inch thick (rind cut off and tough center removed)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 Preheat grill.

2 Place salmon on a large sheet of lightly oiled, heavy-duty aluminum foil.

3 Spoon chopped chipotle on top of each piece of salmon and rub gently into the fish.

4 Dot each piece of salmon with butter. Sprinkle lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

5 Wrap the salmon in the foil so that it looks like a little package. Place on grill and cook on medium-high setting for about 8-10 minutes.

6 Remove salmon from grill and set aside. Let it rest in the packet.

7 Place sliced pineapple on the grill, cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until tender with nice grill marks.

8 Place grilled pineapple on serving plate. Place salmon on top of the pineapple and garnish with cilantro.
