Teriyaki Salmon with Pineapple Black Bean Salsa

Hi Friends!

I’ve got a fun new salmon recipe to share with you guys today. The other weekend I was in the mood for salmon. We eat a lot of salmon, most often in burger/cake form…but this time I was in the mood for something different. This is super easy and it comes together quickly.

We picked up some pineapple at Kroger when they were on sale for $1 and immediately knew I wanted pineapple black bean salsa! I put together a quick teriyaki glaze for the salmon, threw together the salsa, put it on a plate and called it a day!

Ingredients
  • For the Sauce:
  • 3 Tbsp low-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 Tbsp thai chili sauce
  • 1-2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • For the Salsa:
  • 1 c black beans
  • ¾ c pineapple, diced
  • ¼ c red onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro
  • Additional Ingredients:
  • Salmon Fillets

Instructions
  1. Mix salsa ingredients together in a small bowl and let stand.
  2. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. Place the salmon fillets in a heated non-stick pan.
  4. Top with half the sauce.
  5. Pan sear until salmon is cooked through, flipping occasionally.
  6. Remove from pan and top with extra sauce.
  7. Serve with salsa.

 

Doesn’t get any easier than that, friends! I didn’t even marinate the salmon and it still tasted great! If you have extra time and want to marinate it, go for it…but I don’t think it’s necessary. You can also grill the salmon instead of pan-searing it!

Enjoy!
