1/2 c. natural pineapple juice
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
2 salmon fillets, 4 oz. each
1/4 tsp. sesame oil
ground black pepper to taste
1 c. diced fresh fruit, such as pineapple, mango and papaya


Combine pineapple juice, soy sauce, and ginger. Arrange salmon in small baking dish, pour marinade over top. Marinate for 1 hr. in refrigerator, turn periodically.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat 2 squares of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Place salmon on foil, drizzle with sesame oil, sprinkle with pepper, and top with 1/2 c. diced fruit.

Wrap and fold foil around salmon, sealing edges. Bake (or grill) until fish is opaque, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer to plates and serve immediately.
