I came across this recipe in a local fundraiser cookbook. We made some slight adjustments to it since then, but it is a great recipe to use when grilling. It's a favorite summer meal. —Amy Sauser, Omaha, Nebraska

  1. In a small bowl, combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, horseradish, parsley, 3 teaspoons sesame oil, honey and pepper. Pour 2/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add salmon and green onions. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, turning occasionally. Add remaining sesame oil to remaining marinade. Cover and refrigerate for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill salmon, skin side down, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 8-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting frequently with reserved marinade. Yield: 8 servings.

"I usually don't cook fish at home but this recipe intrigued me. This was the absolute best salmon we have ever tasted!"

"Very good--used orange juice instead of pineapple; along with Pasta with Cream Sauce and Green Salad with Herb Vinaigrette (both TOH recipes) this makes a great dinner for family or quests."

"Simple to make. I used orange-pineapple juice and grilled it. My sister and BIL both commented on how good this was. Would definitely make this again."
