Slow-Roasted Chipolte Salmon with Pineapple Rice

When Pam, on her blog Sidewalk Shoes, shared this recipe from "Cuisine at Home" recently I knew I wanted to make it for Saturday Blog Showcase, hosted each Saturday by my friends Ann and Lori.
This week Ann @ Thibeault's Table is hosting.

The layers of flavor in this dish are unbelievably delicious ~

filets are brushed with a mixture of adobo sauce from canned chipolte chilis
a little brown sugar, and salt then roasted in a slow oven for about 20 to 30 minutes (depending upon the thickness of the filets.)

After roasting the fish is brushed once again with the Chipolte sauce and placed under the broiler for a moment to slightly caramelize the sauce.

Pineapple rice provides a perfect foil for the salmon which has a bit of a spicy kick. Finally a slightly sweet-tart Lime-Ginger and Scallion Sauce is drizzled over ~ it compliments both the rice and the fish wonderfully.

It received raves at my house, 5 out of 5 stars! I would definitely make this one again for the family and I think it would be great on a dinner party menu as well.
