How to make pineapple salsa:

How to cook salmon:

  2. To a medium-size casserole dish, add 1 tablespoon of melted butter and spread on the bottom. Add salmon fillet skin side down to the casserole dish. Sprinkle with salt on top.

  3. Top salmon with minced garlic. Add lime slices all around. Top with sliced butter, unmelted.

  4. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or longer (depends on your oven), or until the salmon is cooked through. Remove from the oven.  Remove lime slices from the casserole dish.

Final Assembly:

  1. Pour the salsa over cooked salmon.
