Caribbean jerk seasoning can vary quite dramatically in heat so it may be necessary to adjust the seasoning to your own taste.

Ingredients

  • 1/2  small fresh pineapple, cut lengthwise OR 4 slices canned, drained pineapple rings, cut in half
  • 1  Pound  Alaska Pollock fillets, fresh, thawed or frozen
  • 1  Teaspoon  jerk seasoning rub
  • small (6 to 7-inch) yellow corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1  Tablespoon  olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
  • 2  Cups  arugula or spinach leaves (or 2 cups prepared favorite coleslaw)
  • 1/2  lime, cut into wedges

Directions

Peel and core fresh pineapple half; cut into 8 equal slices.  Using a stovetop grill pan, grill pineapple slices for 2 to 3 minutes on each side over medium heat until browned.  Remove from heat, set aside.

Rinse any ice from frozen Alaska pollock under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.  Sprinkle jerk seasoning on both sides of each fillet.  In a heavy nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add fillets to pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes, until browned.  Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.  

Turn fillets over and cover pan tightly with a lid. Cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes for frozen Alaska Pollock or 2 to 3 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook the fish just until it is opaque throughout.

To serve, layer 1/4 cup arugula (or slaw), a pineapple slice, and 1/2 of a fish fillet onto each tortilla.  Squeeze lime wedge over fillet.
