Pineapple-Marinated Salmon Yield: 12 servings
1 (46 ounce) can of unsweetened pineapple juice
1/4 cup light reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 (2-1/4 pound) center cut skinless salmon filet, cut crosswise into 24 1/2-inch wide slices
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
Bring the pineapple juice to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes or until juice is reduced to 3 cups.
Pour into a bowl to cool. Stir in soy sauce.
Arrange the fish in a single layer in two 10" x 15" baking dishes. Pour marinade over the fish, dividing evenly. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 450° F. Spray 2 large, rimmed baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
Drain the fish, reserving the marinade. Place the fish flat side down on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 4 minutes or until just cooked through.
Using a spatula, carefully move the fish to a serving platter.
Simmer the reserved marinade in a medium saucepan over medium heat for 15 minutes or until reduced to 1 cup.
Brush the fish with the sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.*
*This dish can also be made one day ahead and covered and stored in the refrigerator.
