So a month or so ago I made a lemon garlic butter salmon in foil with pineapple and quinoa. That was so delicious! I just loved it! It’s easy to make and it’s healthy, if you don’t like quinoa you can make it with rice.

This would be for 2 people.


2 salmon fillets
1/2 pineapple, halved and sliced
¼ cup butter
⅓ cup honey
4 large cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice of ½ a lemon)
Salt and pepper

For the quinoa see package for preparation.

1. Preheat your oven to 200°C.

2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Add honey, garlic and lemon. Whisk until the honey has melted through the butter and the mixture is well combined. Add one tablespoon chopped parsley, mix well and set aside.

3. Cut 4 sheets of 35cm length aluminum foil. Divide pineapple slices among sheets layering in center in an even layer and sprinkle with pepper. Arrange salmon fillets on top and drizzle with the honey lemon garlic butter sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with more chopped parsley.

4. Pull sides of foil inward and seal then roll edges up, try to leave a little room for heat to circulate. Transfer the packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy with brown or white rice if desired and remaining sauce. Sprinkle with additional chopped parsley if you like.
