Hawaiian Style Fish

Serves: 4-6

  • Fish fillet* - 750gm (1.5lb), cut into 1 inch wide pieces
  • Fresh pineapple - 2 cups, minced (reserve the pineapple juice)
  • Onion - 1 sml, minced
  • Jalapeno - 1 minced
  • Cilantro - 1/2 cup, chopped
  • Salt & pepper - to taste

  • Spice rub:
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Chili powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • 1. In a bowl, mix the spices for the spice rub. Rub the fish fillets with the rub thoroughly to coat all over. Let it marinade for 30 min.
  • 2. In a non stick pan, heat 4 tbsp of oil. Fry the fish fillets on med-high heat to crisp up the edges. Remove and let it drain on a paper towel.
  • 3. Add the onions to the oil. Season with salt & pepper. Saute till they are translucent. Add the pineapple and the jalapeno with the reserved juices. Stir to combine, lower the heat and simmer till the juices have evaporated and the pineapple has thickened a bit.
  • 4. Return the fish fillets to the pineapple sauce. Cover and simmer for 15 min. If the pineapple seems to have dried out, then add a bit more juice so that the fish is moistened.
  • 5. After the 15 min, check whether the sauce has thickened and reached a salsa like consistency. If so, your Hawaiian style fish is done.
  • 6. Turn the heat off, and sprinkle some chopped cilantro on top. Serve with rice or polao.
*You can use any white fish, which is low in visible fat for example Barramundi, Cod, Tilapia etc. Salmon also stands up to the taste very well. I had used Ruhi.
