Mr. Food

Serves: 4
Chilling Time: 1 hr
Cooking Time: 35 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 2 cups watermelon chunks, pureed (see Note)
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

What To Do:

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine pineapple juice, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and salmon. Seal tightly and marinate in refrigerator at least 1 hour.

  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine watermelon puree, orange marmalade, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Keep warm.

  3. Coat a grill pan or large skillet with cooking spray and cook salmon over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately with watermelon glaze.

Notes: To puree the watermelon, place chunks in blender or food processor and blend until puree forms.
