Makes 8 tacos


  • Two ¾" slabs fresh pineapple
  • ½ medium yellow onion, cut into small dice
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and cut into small dice
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and cut into small dice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • Salt and pepper

12 ounces salmon filets cut into 2-3 pieces

Olive oil

8 corn tortillas

  1. Prepare the grill to cook direct over medium high heat.
  2. Grill the pineapple slices, flipping often until they are charred on both sides. In a medium bowl combine the onion, tomato, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. When the pineapple has cooled, remove the rind, and cut the flesh into medium dice. Add to the salsa and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Brush the salmon lightly with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Grill, flipping often until golden brown and cooked just until the white fat is coming to the surface, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the salmon to a plate and set aside. Stir the salsa and taste it. Add salt and pepper if desired. Quickly warm the tortillas on the grill flipping them often just until warm. Break up the salmon into flakes and divide among the tortillas. Top each with a spoonful of the salsa and serve immediately.
