Pineapple Plank Sweet Salmon
Seafood / Dinner
Slice the pineapple in half. Then cut the rounded side of each half to create a 1 inch thick pineapple plank. You will have 2 planks and 2 rounded ends.
Setting up your grill - you will want to have have one side direct heat and the other side indirect heat.
Ceramic - Use heat deflector on one side or bank your coals/chunks to one side.
Kettle - Bank your coals/chunks to one side.
Gas - Set one side to high and one side to very low.
Oven - No setup, but oven is an option.
Season all the pineapple planks with Lane's Honey Sriracha Rub and sear on the hot side of the grill. You want to get some good grill marks then place the plank on the indirect heat side of the grill.
Remove any salmon skin. Splash the salmon with Teriyaki sauce and season with Lane's Kapalua rub or Lane's Honey Sriracha rub (We suggest both if you have them, they pair well together) Then place the salmon on one of the pineapple planks.
**(remember you will be cooking the salmon on the pineapple plank on the indirect heat side)
Cook indirect for 45 minutes to an hour. Until the internal salmon temperature is around 135. Once internal temp has been reached glaze the salmon with Lane's Pineapple Chipotle BBQ Sauce. (pour on evenly or brush on)
Cook another 10 minutes or until Salmon internal temperature has reached 145 - glaze should be nice and set
Optional garnish and sides: Sesame seeds or scallions are great to garnish. Fried rice or Cilantro slaw are great sides.
Lets eat! You can eat your salmon however you want. We grabbed some tortillas, chopped up some of the grilled pineapple, and made some pineapple salmon tacos!
Salmon Size - Salmon does come in all sizes. If your salmon is too big to fit on one pineapple plank you can use the other plank side by side to grill the salmon. If you are doing more than one salmon you also have the rounded ends that can also be used as planks.
Adding Smoke - If you want to add some smoke to the salmon we used Cherry Wood.
Chopping your pineapple into 3 planks - You can also chop up your pineapple into three planks based on the size salmon you purchased. We suggest slicing the pineapple to the amount of salmon or size salmon you purchased.
