Hawaiian Grilled Salmon

Hawaiian Grilled Salmon

salmon filets thawed (we buy ours not frozen in bulk from Sams or Costco)
1 can no sugar added pineapple rings

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Splenda Brown Sugar
1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp garlic minced
1 cup pineapple juice (I just use the amount in the can from the rings)
1 tsp fresh grated ginger, or you can use 1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp onion powder

Mix marinade ingredients well, marinate salmon in 3/4 of the marinade

In a separate container marinate the pineapple rings in the remaining marinade

Refrigerate both for 2-4 hours

Heat grill to high

Wrap salmon in foil sprayed with cooking spray and grill on medium-low heat until cooked through and the salmon flakes easily in the middle, grill pineapple rings for about 2 minutes per side right before or after the salmon is done

Grilling time varies greatly depending on thickness of salmon, but salmon does cook much faster then chicken breast or steak.

You do not have to grill the pineapple or even marinade it, you can use it cold with no marinade, it is great either way,  If you are no marinating the pineapple, just pour all the marinade on the salmon when prepping.

When serving salmon, pepper to taste and serve with pineapple slices on top.

You can also just use half of the marinade and refrigerate the rest to make Hawaiian Chicken the next day.
