Grilled Hawaiian Salmon with Strawberry Pineapple Salsa


My inspiration for this splendid recipe came from a dish on the menu at Longhorn® Steakhouse. I've guessed how it's made and decided to add strawberries to the salsa, but I am sure it will be fine with just pineapples. Strawberry preserves serve as the marinade base, mixed with soy, vinegar, and sesame oil.

Strawberry-Pineapple Salsa:

  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Mix strawberry preserves, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil, garlic powder, onion powder, ginger, and pepper together in a bowl to make marinade. Pour 1/3 cup into a glass measuring cup; reserve. Place salmon fillets in the bowl.

  2. Marinate salmon in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
