Grilled Salmon and Pineapple

4 servings

prep time: 15 min

cook time: 25 min


  • 4 4oz skinless salmon fillets
  • 4 round slices or rings of fresh pineapple
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh basil chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh basil chives
  • 1 tsp fresh tarragon chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the avocado sauce:

  • 1 small avocado
  • Juice from 1 large lemon
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chives chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh tarragon chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt – more to taste


  1. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat an outdoor grill. Whisk the oil, chopped basil, chives, chopped tarragon, salt and pepper in a small bowl to blend. Brush the salmon and pineapple slices with the herb mixture. Cook the salmon about 4-6 minutes per side depending on it’s thickness. Cook the pineapple until slightly charred about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  2. While the salmon is cooking, make the avocado sauce. Combine the lemon juice, basil, chives, olive oil, tarragon, salt, pepper, garlic and avocado in a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of water and process until smooth. Cover the dressing and let stand for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour for the flavors to blend. Add more salt to taste.
  3. Serve with 1 pineapple slice with the salmon on top. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the avocado sauce over each piece of fish. Enjoy! I served this with Pina Colada Coleslaw
