I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Barbecued Salmon in Pineapple Bark

OMG ...I could not wait to share this one!

4 salmon fillets
1 fresh pineapple

1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup light soya sauce
2 tbsps lemon juice
a few drops of sesame seed oil
1 tbsp fresh chopped coriander

salt and lemon pepper to taste

Mix honey, soya sauce, lemon juice, sesame seed oil and coriander together and pour into a ziplock bag. You may not use all the marinade depending on the size of your fillets. Add the salmon and press out as much air as you can. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
In the meantime prepare your pineapple bark. Don't forget to wash the pineapple and scrub it with a vegetable brush. Then stand it on end and slice down the sides. 
Remove the salmon from the marinade, sprinkle with salt and lemon pepper and place between two pieces of pineapple bark.
Tie up with a piece of kitchen string about 24 inches long.

Set temperature on BBQ to between 425-450F.
Place your neat little packets on the grill, close the lid and cook for 10 minutes.
Flip them over and cook another 10 minutes.
Take one off at that time to check it.  The salmon should flake easily. 
Snip the string and serve salmon on the bottom piece of pineapple bark. The flavours are all sealed in by the pineapple and the salmon is beautifully moist.
Next time.....chicken breasts.  Oh ya, it's gonna happen!
