1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 of a whole (4 pound) pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 pieces lengthwise
Lime wedges (optional), for serving
1. Heat broiler, with rack in top position. Cook rice according to package instructions.
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray, arrange salmon and pineapple in a single layer, and brush with half the maple syrup glaze. Broil until salmon is cooked through, 8 to 11 minutes, brushing salmon and pineapple with glaze halfway through.
Heat BBQ grill to medium and lightly oil grates. Cook salmon until coated through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Ensure fish is cooked through. Reserve 1/4 of your maple/cayenne mixture to serve on top of salmon.
3. Cut pineapple into chunks. Serve rice with salmon, pineapple, and lime wedges, if desired. If BBQ'ing, drizzle maple/cayenne mixture over fish. Enjoy!
