Entered in the 2015 Blogger Recipe Challenge – Submitted by Wild Flowers Kitchen

INGREDIENTS:

2 lbs. thick filet of salmon, cut into 12 – 2½” x 3½” pieces, or as desired
1 tbsp Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Pork and Poultry Rub (⅛ tsp. per side/top and bottom)
Fresh squeezed orange juice from 1 navel orange
12 (1/4″ – ⅓” thick) 2½” x 3½” slices brie cheese (with or without rind)
4 slices fresh pineapple rings cut into thirds (can sub canned – but fresh is always SO much better!)
12 tsp. pure orange blossom honey
1 pkg. (12-count) King’s Hawaiian Rolls
12 pieces of fresh, crisp kale torn to size

For Slaw:
2 cups shredded coleslaw mix with bits of carrots (chop mix smaller if desired)
¼ cup Greek yogurt
¼ cup mayo
⅛ Tsp. Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Pork and Poultry Rub
1 tsp. orange zest
1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed orange juice from half of a navel orange
1 tsp. pure orange blossom honey, or to taste
⅔ cup small diced fresh mango (can sub frozen, cut smaller/no need to thaw first)
1 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion

 

DIRECTIONS:

Place oven rack close to the broiler (about 7″ from broiler). Preheat oven to Medium broil.  In medium bowl, mix together Greek yogurt, mayo, Pork & Poultry Rub, 1 Tbsp. orange juice, orange zest and honey until well mixed, creamy and honey is fully incorporated. In large bowl, add coleslaw mix. Pour slaw dressing over coleslaw and stir well to mix. Fold in mango and red onion well. Cover and chill until needed.

Slice pineapple, cover and chill until needed.  Cut salmon into slider-sized pieces, sprinkle skin side with Pork & Poultry Rub. Slice 1 orange in half, squeeze juice from half of orange over salmon pieces. Place seasoned, skin side-down onto parchment paper. Repeat on top sides until all pieces are seasoned and juiced. Pop into preheated oven and broil, carefully watching, for 4-5 minutes depending on thickness. Remove and carefully turn over. Return to oven to broil another 3 minutes. Remove from oven promptly, top each with a piece of brie, a piece of pineapple, and a drizzle of honey. Broil 1-2 minutes longer. Remove promptly.

Slice open slider rolls, place torn pieces of kale onto bottoms, top with a piece of cheesy pineapple salmon, top with a spoonful of coleslaw, and place on tops. Enjoy!

Notes:

If a milder fish is desired, try cod, Lake Perch, blue gill or walleye, (grilled, pan-fried, broiled or baked). And you can always sub the fish completely for pieces of boneless skinless chicken breasts, lean pork loin, or even ham slices, (grilled, pan-fried or baked).

*Really delicious with oven-roasted fresh broccolini & sweet potato fries!
