  • 2 salmon fillets (with skin or skinless)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 8 ounces pineapple tidbits (drained)
  • 1 cup sweet and sour sauce


  1. Rinse the salmon fillets and pat dry with paper towels. Liberally salt and lightly pepper the fillets.

  2. Add the olive oil to a heavy metal skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chopped green pepper and saute a minute or two.

  3. Push the sauteed green bell pepper to the sides of the skillet and add the salmon fillets (skin side up). Fry for about 5 minutes on the first side. Watch for the sides turning white. Do not try to move the fillets while cooking.

  4. Flip the fillets over, using a metal spatula to get in under the fillets. Continue cooking for a couple of minutes.

  5. Reduce the heat to medium and add the sweet and sour sauce and pineapple. Cook for 1-2 minutes more until everything is heated. Serve immediately.
