4 serves


  • 1 cup white rice

  • ½ cup maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ fresh pineapple, peeled

  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped


  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions.

  2. Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. Heat broiler. Place the salmon in a foil-lined 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper.

  4. Cut the pineapple lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter into ½-inch-thick triangles. Scatter the pineapple and jalapeño around the salmon.

  5. Brush the salmon with the syrup mixture and broil for 5 to 7 minutes or until it flakes easily and is the same color throughout.

  6. Serve the salmon and pineapple with the rice and drizzle with the remaining glaze, if desired.
