Preheat oven to 400°F. Place salmon in a baking dish and set aside. Put miso in a medium bowl. Add 2 tablespoons pineapple juice and stir to dissolve miso. Stir in remaining pineapple juice, oil, brown sugar, turmeric, and jalapeño. Pour over the salmon. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper. Bake until salmon flakes easily and the flesh is opaque, 15 to 20 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
