Serves: 4 to 6 servings

  • 1½ pounds salmon fillet, skin removed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or wheat-free tamari (for gluten-free)
  • 1½ cups packaged broccoli slaw mix
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup chopped salted peanuts
  • Chopped peanuts, for garnish
  • Fresh lime slices and cilantro leaves, optional for garnish
  1. Drain the pineapple chunks, reserving juice.
  2. Place ¼ cup of the pineapple juice into a bowl with the soy sauce; add the salmon, tossing to coat. Let sit about 15 minutes.
  3. Gently stir ¼ cup of the pineapple juice and broccoli slaw into hot rice, until well combined. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Whisk the peanut butter with the remaining pineapple juice, sriracha, lime juice, and lime zest, until well combined.
  5. Place an oven rack 6 inches from broiler element and preheat the broiler. Line a broiler pan with foil and grease.
  6. Thread the salmon cubes and pineapple chunks onto 8 metal (or soaked bamboo) skewers, dividing equally, and place them on the prepared broiler pan.
  7. Cook the skewers for 2 minutes, then brush with the peanut butter mixture. Repeat brushing and broiling until the salmon is flaky, turning as needed to brown evenly, about 8 minutes total.
  8. Divide the warm rice slaw evenly among four serving plates and top with skewers.
  9. Sprinkle the skewers lightly with chopped peanuts. Serve with additional lime slices and cilantro leaves, if desired.
