Zesty Healthy BBQ Salmon Recipe

This recipe is packed with some of my favorite ultimate health foods. the salmon is a wonderful source of superb healthy fats; omega-3 fatty acids, the lemon rind contains one of the most powerful anti cancer nutrient called limonene; cinnamon is a superb herb to help prevent diabetes and the lemon juice, which is acidic, will lower the glycemic index of this meal so that you will not get a spike in insulin thus you will feel energized and well satiated. And finally, the pineapple contains digestive enzymes to help your body digest and absorb all of these fabulous nutrients!

  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, may use agave or a dab of stevia as well
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Lemon slices (optional)

Combine first 3 ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Remove fish from bag; discard marinade. Combine sweetener and next 5 ingredients (sweetener through cinnamon) in a bowl. Rub over fish; place in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with olive oil. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lemon slices, if desired.
