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.

This Teriyaki Salmon is topped with a flavorful pineapple and black bean salsa for an easy weeknight dinner.

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!

So here’s what you do:

Teriyaki Salmon with Pineapple Black Bean Salsa

This easy recipe is full of healthy fats and is ready in a snap. Let the fiesta begin!

Teriyaki Salmon with Pineapple Black Bean Salsa


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
3/4 c pineapple, diced
1/4 c red onion, diced
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro
Additional Ingredients:
Salmon Fillets


  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!

  13. Salmon is my favorite! I picked up a salmon salad for dinner last night because I just had to have it. I’m always intimidated about making my own salmon at home. I worry that I’ll dry it out/overcook it or something!
