Brown Sugar Honey Marinated Salmon with Caramelized Pineapple Quinoa by Ambitious Kitchen. The fish itself is sweet, with an almost teriyaki flavor. You’ll want to be sure to marinade it for at least an hour or two to let the salmon soak up the lovely flavors from the pineapple juice and soy sauce. A few minutes before I took the salmon out of the oven, I turned on the broiler to get the top of it slightly crispy and caramelized. Mmmmm.
