Pacific Rim Salmon

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.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.

    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.

    For all the yummy ingredients this recipe calls for, I was disappointed in the results. It was just okay.~ Theresa

    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.
