Last year we had an abnormally light winter with only a handful of snowstorms and the temperatures were pretty tolerable compared to past years. This winter has not been so kind. Snowstorm after snowstorm has rolled through, dumping anywhere from a few inches to a foot of snow on any given day. I’m done with the cold, I’m done with the ice and snow, and I’m ready for warm weather, tanlines, and everything Summer.

I can’t be anywhere sunny and 75 right now, but Dole Packaged Foods products, (including pineapple!!) are available year round so I’m getting my summer fix with this Thai pineapple salmon at the moment and It’s definitely the next best thing to actual Summertime! Having my favorite top-notch fruits and veggies available all the time makes it easy to slip them into my family’s dinner routine on a regular basis. Thank heaven because I can’t live 6 months of the year without pineapple you guys, that’s just not something I was built to handle.

No matter how cold it is outside, I’m feeling pretty elated with a plateful of this baked, flaky salmon with juicy Dole pineapple slices, all smothered in a sweet and spicy Thai sauce and topped with chopped peanuts and cilantro. Baking the salmon and pineapple in foil keeps all of the sauce and juices trapped right around the salmon so it soaks up all the flavors while it’s cooking. Plus it makes for the easiest cleanup! No pans to scrub, no dishes to wash, just toss the messy foil in the garbage and you’re good to go.

This was an amazing dish! Simple, super tasty and healthy. I substituted Coconut Aminos Soy -Free Seasoning Sauce ( 2 tbsp) and Coconut Aminos Teriyaki Sauce ( 2 tbsp) for the Hoisin Sauce since I’m gluten free. I can’t wait to make this dish again, but I will double the sauce. It was so delicious to pour over rice! We all wanted more of that amazing Thai flavor. Thank you!

Hi,
May I ask what is the weight of the large salmon fillet? If I use the small fillet, how many pieces should I use? Thanks.

We eat salmon at my house once a week, my kids gobble it up so it’s an easy staple, but I have such a basic recipe for preparing it and have become slightly bored with it lately. This Thai version sounds so tasty! It would be great to add into our rotation.

I made this tonight. Very, very good! I will definitely make this again. Only thing I might do differently next time is carmelize the pineapple in a skillet before I use it in the dish. Definitely a keeper!

    Ooh, I love the idea of caramelizing the pineapple first Renee!

Looks tasty, but what part is Thai?

    Can we use any other kind of fish in this recipe?

Do you seal the foil around the salmon like a poucH?

    Hi Tammy- You fold the sides up just enough to create a barrier so that the liquid doesn’t run everywhere! You can see it in some of the pictures on this page! Hoping this helps!

Sounds and looks delicious…

Wow. So easy, aNd SO delicous. What a hit at our holiday dinner table! DEFinite remake!!

    SO excited to hear this was a hit at your holiday dinner table! Thanks for your feedback, Dana!! Happy Holidays to you 🙂

What can i use in place of the hoISin sauce and rice viNegar

So, what is meant by a large filet? A large filet for one person might be twice as big as for another

    1 1/2 – 2 lbs is a good estimate!
