  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

For the Salsa

  • 1 cup Dole Fridge Pack Mixed Fruit (or Pineapple)

  • Whisk together brown sugar, honey, allspice, cumin, lime juice, salt, thyme, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, and cinnamon until well combined.
  • Add salmon to a non-stick foil lined baking sheet greased sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the jerk sauce on the tops of each of the salmon.
  • Bake for 14-18 minutes or until salmon is done to your preference.

Notes

I used the Mixed Fruit variety here to really vary up the textures, but you can also just use the Pineapple Chunks variety if that is your preference.
You can also replace salmon with another fillet fish of your choice.  This marinade works well with other fish varieties.
