  • 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano

Grilled Pineapple Salsa:

  • 4-5 pineapple spears

  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • juice of one lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4-6 flour tortillas for serving


  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Arrange the salmon on a cedar plank (or on aluminum foil) and drizzle with olive oil. In a small bowl combine chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, thyme, basil and oregano. Rub on the salmon fillets.
  2. Place the salmon on the grill and grill for 12-15 minutes or until salmon is cooked though out and edges are slightly brown.
