Pacific Rim Salmon Recipe

Pacific Rim Salmon Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 5 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 8 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 5 green onions, coarsely chopped

Directions

  • 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.
