Pineapple Rum Salmon recipe from

Pineapple Rum Salmon is a delicious dish that comes highly recommended.

Does pineapple rum salmon look and sound amazing to you?

I’ve been intrigued ever since I heard a friend going on and on about a pineapple rum sauce she’d found somewhere and how amazing it was on salmon. And, naturally, my favorite 7 week old helper and I decided we should put together some for dinner tonight.

It starts with a sauce and a marinade.

I feel like that phrase should be the opening line of a phenomenal novel. And it may one day, but I haven’t yet started writing it. Stay tuned… but don’t hold your breath. In the meantime, please enjoy this delicious meal. Sweet, tangy, and simply delicious.

A hit in our house, and a recipe to add to our repertoire.

Delicious sweet and tangy marinade for salmon… and a sauce for whatever you like!
  • Pineapple Rum Marinade
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, reduced sodium
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup rum (or substitute bourbon or whiskey)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I substituted molasses)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • pepper to taste
  • Salmon
  • 1/2 cup Pineapple Rum Marinade
  • 1 16 oz filet of salmon
  • Serving Suggestions
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • pineapple rings
Pineapple Rum Marinade
  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Let sit in fridge for 1 hour to allow flavors to marry, if time allows.
Salmon & Pineapple Rings
  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Set salmon filet upside down in glass dish filled with 1/2 cup marinade.
  3. Let sit for 2 hours in refrigerator.
  4. Place salmon and remaining marinade right side up in a tin foil boat and place on grill.[br] This helps keep your grill clean and allows remaining sauce to caramelize with the fish.
  5. Cook salmon for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. Place the pineapple rings directly on the grill, one minute per side.
Serve salmon over a bed of quinoa, accompanied by pineapple rings. Refrigerate the remaining marinade in a glass jar to reuse, and/or to spoon over your favorite foods.
