  • Preheat the grill to medium heat, about 350-400 degrees F.
  • Place a piece of foil on a large baking sheet and set the salmon fillet on it. Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel and let it continue drying for a few minutes as you make the salsa.
  • Chop all the fresh produce. In a medium bowl, mix the pineapple, bell pepper, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and garlic. Add ¼ cup TS Sweet & Sour Pineapple Sauce, and 1 teaspoon TS Seasoning Salt to the mix. Stir to combine.
  • Pour 1 tablespoon avocado oil over the salmon fillet. Brush the oil over the surface of the fillet. Then sprinkle the top of the salmon with 1-2 teaspoons TS Seasoning Salt.
  • Carefully flip the salmon onto the grill, skin-side-up. Grill for 2 minutes. Then using two large spatulas, flip the salmon over skin-side-down. Brush ½ cup TS Sweet & Sour Pineapple Sauce over the Salmon and grill for another 5-8 minutes. The thickest end of the salmon should bounce back when touched (not feel mushy) yet should still be soft.
  • Discard the foil. Use two large spatulas to carefully move the whole salmon fillet back onto the baking sheet.
  • Spoon the salsa over the top of the salmon fillet and serve warm.



No grill? No problem!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the salmon on a large rimmed baking sheet. Brush the top of the salmon with ½ cup TS Sweet & Sour Pineapple Sauce, then sprinkle with 1-2 teaspoon TS Seasoning Salt. (Omit the avocado oil.)
Bake skin-side-down for 10-15 minutes. Then top with the fresh pineapple salsa.
