Hey there! I realized that it’s been a loooong time since I shared a seafood recipe on here, so I’m back today with a tasty weeknight dinner. Bonus? It’s good for you! Double bonus? Your kids will even like it!

Baked Pineapple Barbecue Salmon

I have always loved the combination of sweet fruit salsas or sauces with a nice piece of fish. Since salmon is my boys’ favorite seafood (other than fried fish sticks!), we tend to eat a lot of it. That’s why I’m always looking for new, kid-friendly ways to prepare the fish. This Baked Pineapple Barbecue Salmon was a winner all around!

Of course it tastes good, but I was especially happy with how easily this meal came together. Seriously, in less than 15 minutes from start to finish, you can have dinner on the table. And you only need 4 ingredients! That’s right…4! And the salmon counts as one of those ingredients. 🙂

So what are you waiting for? Add this healthy dish to your weekly meal plan and enjoy a stress-free supper. Maybe even pour yourself a glass of wine while you’re at it.

Here’s the ridiculously simple recipe:

    Yum. We love eating salmon and I usually make it with a sweet miso sauce. This will be a nice change as I don’t usually use a BBQ sauce. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday. Pinned.
