Recipe Of The Day: Maple Glazed Salmon w/ Pineapple Salsa

As the Summer steadily approaches your going to find us making lighter and lighter dishes. This Southern California heat will leave you drained at days end and in need a good amount of protein, fruits and vegetables to build yourself back up for the next day. Todays Recipe Of The Day: Maple Glazed Salmon w/ Pineapple Salsa, works incredibly well with white wines, rum flavored libations or a good old sangria. I also try to always serve this with some well seasoned and spicy Guacamole. Enjoy  

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1 TBS Maple Syrup
1 TBS Teriyaki Sauce
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 TBS Pineapple Juice
1 tsp Fresh Ginger (Minced)
1 Garlic Clove (Mashed)
Pineapple Salsa, recipe follows

Place salmon filets in a large Ziploc plastic bag.
Combine marinade ingredients in a non-reactive bowl (non metallic.)
Pour marinade over filets and refrigerate from 1 to 24 hours.
Heat a grille pan on the stove over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray liberally.
Grill over medium heat 3 – 5 mins skin side down.
Flip and grill another 2 – 5 mins (depending on thickness of fillet)
Serve with Pineapple Salsa spooned on the side.

Pineapple Salsa Ingredients:
1 medium Tomato (Seeded and Diced)
1/4 cup Red Bell Pepper (Diced)
3 Pickled Jalapeno Pepper Slices (Deseeded and Finele Diced)
1/2 cup Pineapple Chunks (Fresh or Canned)
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 TBS Sugar
Place all ingredients in a small, non-reactive saucepan.
Simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes.
Cool and refrigerate until ready to serve with the salmon.

*Cooks Note* Be careful to not over cook your fish as the glaze has a tendency to get hot on the grill quickly. Watch your heat and flip the fish only once.
