Source: Everyday Food, March 2011


  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 of a whole (4 pound) pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 pieces lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • Lime wedges (optional), for serving


  1. Heat broiler, with rack in top position. Cook rice according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray, arrange salmon and pineapple in a single layer, and brush with half the maple syrup glaze. Broil until salmon is cooked through, 8 to 11 minutes, brushing salmon and pineapple with glaze halfway through. Cut pineapple into chunks. Add cilantro to rice and fluff with a fork. Serve rice with salmon, pineapple, and lime wedges, if desired.

    This was delicious. I used a can of crushed pineapple that I just added to maple syrup mixture. Really easy and tasty.

    The Salmon was very good with the maple cayenne glaze. I didn't like the glaze on the pineapple it was too hot for me.
