Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz Sandwiches…the Bunny edition.
The coolest thing just happened about five minutes ago.
My next door neighbor (high Alton and Jan) just came over to tell me how great he and his wife think my blog is and that they are now fans of “Chef Tieghan”. They even gave me a hand written note!
Apparently they are big foodies!
Here is something you have to know about our two houses. We can totally see into each others kitchens, we both have big picture windows that look directly into each other. Well actually their breakfast nook and our kitchen table. Oh, and the grills that we both use, yes even when our decks are covered in snow (a little snow will not stop serious foodies from grilling) are also in within viewing of each other.
I never told you guys, but I did an interview for our local paper here in Summit County and well, they read it! They suddenly understood why I was in the kitchen, pretty much during all daylight hours, and why I stand on chairs and take pictures of my food, in the middle of the afternoon.
I always wondered what they must be thinking when they see me snapping away, taking all those picture of food!
Alton came over, just to tell me how awesome they think I am doing. Seriously, how nice is that? I love that food can connect you with so many people, even unexpected ones!
Ok, enough sappy stuff (but seriously – how nice!). Let’s get to these lettuce wraps. Honestly, how awesome do these look? I love all the colors these things have going on! Spring is only a few days away and I am ready!
Hey, if the snow is not going to stop (which it won’t) I can at least eat like it’s spring!
Obviously it is no secret that we like Asian inspired food around here.
Example 1: 20 Minute Pad Thai, Example 2: Asian Veggie Noodle bowl, Example 3: Kung Pao Chicken
These Asian Grilled Salmon Pineapple and Rice Lettuce Wraps are maybe my best asian dish yet. First off, everything about them is healthy. Fish (hello O-mega 3s), fresh fruit, whole grains and veggies!. Second, the salmon and pineapple are just awesome when grilled and then slathered with a ginger-soy sauce dressing. Plus the brown rice, sugar snap peas and lettuce all add fiber and an extra bump of nutrition! Oh, yeah and then to top it off you have to drizzle it with honey glaze. It makes everything come together.
Not going to lie, everyone loved this. I mean look at it, how could you not? Extra bonus – Salmon + Pineapple make me feel like I am on a tropical vacation….

But then I look out the window and it’s back to reality.

I made this for my mums birthday. We have an abundance of pineapple and we wanted something light (it’s hot in the southern hemisphere) so it was perfect! All round a happy family with happy tums. I paired it with some pineapple salsa in addition to the caramelised pumpkin, everyone felt it was a good addition!
Happy Friday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed. Thanks so much for making it and happy holidays!❄️ xTieghan
Best salmon ever
Thank you Terri! xTieghan
Making for the second time, it’s delicious! Would it be okay to marinate for longer?
So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Totally fine to marinate longer. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Another delicious dinner!!! The salmon and pineapple together…yum!!!
Thanks Kara! So happy you like it! 🙂

Pineapple tastes so good with salmon! Thanks for the recipe!
I totally agree!
Yum! These look good, Tieghan! Healthy and delicious!
My mother-in-law doesn’t eat red meat & I’m always looking for interesting suitable recipes to make when she visits. I’ll definitely have to pin this & make later when she’s here; looks delish!
Glad I could help! Let me know what you think!
Hi, visiting from Marvelous Mondays – this looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing the recipe and have a great week!
Thanks so much!
Always looking for new ways to cook salmon, and this looks simply divine! It reminds me of a meal I had at a restuarant once where they served parrot fish with a mango pineapple sauce. Going to tell my mum about this for sure 🙂
Thank you and I hope you guys like it!
That looks absolutely amazing. My mouth is watering now! Thank you for sharing on Foodie Friday – I will definitely be trying this out!
thank you and let me know what you think!
