Chili Lime Salmon

  • 1 lb. wild caught sockeye Salmon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt to season

Pineapple Salsa

  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple
  • 1/3 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon diced fresh jalapeno
  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat, about 375-400 degrees F.
  2. To a small bowl, add fresh lime zest, smoked paprika, ancho chili powder and garlic powder. Stir together.
  3. Rub on the spice blend on the flesh side of the salmon.
  4. Spray grill grates with cooking spray or rub down with an olive oil soaked rag.
  5. Place salmon skin side down first. Grill for 4-5 minutes. (do not touch it during that time)
  6. Flip the fish (fish should not stick to the grill grates, if it does then you need more cook time). Grill on flesh side for another 4 minutes. Remove from grill and let rest.
  7. In the meantime, to a medium bowl add pineapple, red pepper, red onion, fresh cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno and salt to taste. Toss everything together.
  8. Serve salmon filets with pineapple salsa
