Salmon Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

20120406-104928.jpg

Lately we’ve been working on using up our left over salmon in our freezer to make room for this summers fresh catch. We’ve been preparing a lot of colorful meals that not only play with your taste buds, but also with your eyes. This dish is no different! We had some extra ingredients lying around and decided to whip up salmon burgers to snack on. Well, one thing lead to another and we ended up with this gorgeous plate of salmon, lettuce, tomato and grilled pineapple – all bathed in some soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, sesame oil and ginger. It’s fun to get creative with our ingredients, and this turned out to be a really easy Salmon Burger with Grilled Pineapple to put together.

Just grab a bag of tortilla chips and you’ve got a delicious, fun and healthful treat!

    Grilled pineapple is the best! Definitely try it if you have a chcnae. I got a whole pineapple on sale for only $1! I don’t think i’ve tried grilling any other fruit, but i’ve heard people grill avocados too..
