This time of year, the idea of cooking indoors seems faintly silly.
After all, why would you want to shut yourself up in a stuffy, sweaty kitchen when you could be outside, grilling up delicious chow for the whole family to enjoy out on the back porch?
In fact, taking advantage of the outdoors is one of the best perks of summertime cooking, whether you use a campfire, a grill, or a carefully handcrafted BBQ pit!
Add cooking outside doesn’t mean you have to limit yourself to burgers and hot dogs, either. There are tons of creative recipes that you can prepare on the grill, without feeling limited to the typical summer standards.
Take for example, our new favorite meal: Grilled Pineapple Salmon! This sophisticated, flavorful fish dish is packed with complex taste, but don’t be fooled, it’s beyond easy to make!
In fact, this restaurant-worthy meal only requires four simple ingredients, but your guests don’t have to know that when you whip this up for your next dinner party!
Print out the recipe below if you’d like to try it for yourself!
- 2 salmon filets, halved
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 pineapple
- Cooking twine
- Slice and salt your salmon filets until you have 4 serving-size pieces.
- Remove 8 sections of bark from the pineapple, with some fruit attached. Discard remaining fruit or save for later.
- Sandwich each piece of fish between 2 sections of bark. Tie in place with twine.
- Grill fish and pineapple around 12 minutes per side, or until fish appears flaky and fully cooked.
- Remove twine, season with pepper, and plate.
