For the Salmon:

  • 1 lb salmon cut into 4 (4 oz) portions
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro for garnish

For the Coconut Rice:

  • 1 ½ cups jasmine rice
  • 1 14 oz can coconut milk + ¼ cup water
  • ½ tsp salt

For the Pineapple Salsa

  • ¼ red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 cup diced pineapple


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, and place the salmon portions skin side down on the prepared pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, pineapple juice, honey, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Pour about 1/3 of the sauce over the salmon and let marinate for about 10 minutes while you prepare the rice and salsa.
  • For the rice, add all the ingredients for the rice, to a rice cooker or small pot. Turn rice cooker on, or bring pot up to a boil, then lower to a low flame, cover and cook for 20 minutes until done.
  • Make the salsa: combine all ingredients in bowl. Set aside.
  • Season the salmon with a pinch of salt and bake in the oven for about 7-10 minutes (this all depends on how thick the salmon is and how you like it cooked)
  • In a small pot, heat up the remaining marinade. Cook until the sauce thickens a bit so it can easily coat the salmon. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Pour the glaze over the cooked salmon.
  • Serve the salmon over coconut rice and spoon the salsa over the salmon. Garnish with chopped cilantro
