Chef’s Notes: This dish is absolutely beautiful. The pineapple salsa features a rainbow of colors – yellow, red, purple, and green – that perfectly offset the reddish-brown of the spicy fish. And the tangy salsa balances well with the fiery fish. Easy to make, wonderful to eat.
Spicy Fish with Pineapple Relish
1 C. fresh or canned pineapple tidbits
1/2 C. tomato, chopped
1/4 C. red onion, chopped
2 T. fresh jalapeno, minced
1/4 C. white wine
2 T. fresh parsley, chopped
2 T. canola oil
4 (6 ounce) fish fillets (orange roughy, tilapia, or other mild white fish)
2 tsp. Cajun spice
Dash salt and pepper
Combine all relish ingredients, except parsley. Set aside.
Heat oil over medium to medium-high heat in a cast iron skillet. Season fish with Cajun spice, salt, and pepper. Add fish to skillet, and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Transfer fish to serving platter, or individual plates.
Add parsley to relish, stir, and spoon over fish. Garnish with lime slices.
