How to Make It

Heat broiler.

Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place the salmon in a foil-lined 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper. Slice the peel from the pineapple half and cut it lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter into 1/2-inch-thick triangles. Scatter the pineapple and jalapeño around the salmon. Brush the salmon with the syrup mixture. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily when pricked with a fork and the inside is the same color throughout. Serve the salmon and pineapple with the rice and drizzle with the remaining glaze, if desired.

Tip: Slice the other half of the pineapple left over from this recipe, brush it with maple syrup, and broil until it bubbles. Serve with ice cream.

Excellent! Don't use frozen salmon (too dry). Made exactly as in recipe (except substituted 1/2c agave for 1/2c syrup). Great (though unusual) combination of spicy & sweet! Very easy. Next time will try making the glaze in microwave.

This was the BEST Salmon I've ever made. I was concerned my toddlers would think it was to spicy but even they cleaned their plates. YUMMY. Will make this often!
