Equipment

  • Indoor or outdoor grill

Ingredients
  

  • One 6-ounce salmon filet
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 slices lemon
  • 1 tablespoon honey*
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons coconut butter, or substitute with dairy butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 slices fresh pineapple
  • ½ cup red peppers, quartered
  • 1 cup zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup yellow squash, sliced
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet, melt and brown the coconut butter. Add garlic, honey, lemon juice, and rosemary leaves. Stir
  • Season salmon with salt and pepper. Add the salmon to the pan. Using a spoon, continuously baste (or cover) the salmon with the pan sauce as the salmon cooks, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat to prevent overcooking.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush peppers, squash, and zucchini with olive oil and grill for 4 minutes per side. Add pineapple and grill for 2-5 minutes more. Remove from grill.
  • Garnish salmon with lemon. Serve with grilled pineapple and vegetables.

Notes

*Avoid giving honey to children under 1 year of age.
