USING PINEAPPLE PEEL AS GRILLING PLANKS IMPARTS A WONDERFUL FLAVOR TO THE SALMON AND KEEPS IT FROM STICKING TO THE GRILL.
- 1 pineapple
- 4 salmon filets, 6 oz (175 g) each
- ¼ cup (50 mL) Teriyaki Sauce with Honey
- 1 cup (250 mL) rice, uncooked
- 2 cups (500 mL) water
- ½ tsp (2 mL) salt, divided
- ½ cup (125 mL) grape tomatoes
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- ½ jalapeño pepper, seeds removed
- ¼ cup (50 mL) cilantro, loosely packed
- ½ lime
- Preheat the Indoor Outdoor Portable Grill to medium-high heat.
- Slice the top and bottom off of the pineapple and peel and core it using the Pineapple Wedger.
- Place the salmon filets on top of each of the four pineapple peels and brush with the Teriyaki Sauce with Honey.
- Grill the salmon, covered, for 25–30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 120°F (50°C) for medium doneness.
- Meanwhile, add the rice, water, and ¼ tsp (1 mL) of the salt to the Rice Cooker Plus and cook in the microwave according to package directions.
- Cut half of the peeled and cored pineapple into 1″ (2.5 cm) pieces, reserving the other half for a later use. Working in 2 batches, coarsely chop the pineapple using the Manual Food Processor and place it in a medium mixing bowl.
- Chop the tomatoes, garlic, jalapeño, and cilantro using the Manual Food Processor and add the mixture to the pineapple. Juice the lime using the Citrus Press and add the liquid to the pineapple mixture.
- Combine the cooked rice and the pineapple mixture. When the salmon is finished cooking, serve it on the planks with the rice mixture.

2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

- Bake until soft, 25 – 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, if starting with roughly chopped cauliflower, pulse in a blender until reduced to rice-sized pieces, working in batches as needed.
- In a medium bowl, combine crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, honey, red wine vinegar, molasses, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Mix until uniform.
- Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add beef, and sprinkle with remaining 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Cook and crumble for 4 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium. Add cauliflower rice and onion. Cook and stir until beef is fully cooked and veggies have softened, about 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to low. Add tomato mixture, and cook and stir until hot, about 3 minutes.
