Adding grilled fruit to a simple main course transforms it into something out of the ordinary. Here, ho-hum grilled salmon becomes new again with this maple-mustard-ginger glaze and a topping of grilled fresh pineapple.

Hands on time: Total time: 30 minutes Serves: 4
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
4 (1/2-inch) slices fresh pineapple
4 (4- to 6-ounce) salmon fillets
In a bowl, combine maple syrup, mustard and ginger. Generously brush pineapple slices with mixture and then salmon.
Place the salmon on the grill and brush again with marinade. Grill pineapple for 2 to 4 minutes per side. Grill salmon for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or just until cooked through. Serve salmon topped with pineapple slice.
