Recently pineapple went on sale and actually was fresh and not about to rot before it got back to the house. In celebration, I may have over purchased a little bit. Luckily this dish came out perfect. Make sure to use a stronger flavored fish, like haddock or cod, to offset the sweet pineapple and spicy jalapeno sauce.
Cod with Spicy Pineapple Sauce
- 1/2 pineapple skinned, cored and cut into medium sized chunks
- 2 lbs fresh cod
- 1 red bell pepper seeded and cut into quarters
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 jalapenos sliced in half and seeded
- 1/2 medium red onion chopped roughly
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
Season fish with salt, pepper and juice from lemon and orange. Let fish marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours. Place pineapple, red pepper, garlic, onion and jalapeno in a baking dish and roast at 375 degrees until pineapple starts to brown, about 45 minutes. Cool then blend into a thick sauce using the pan juices when needed. Place fish in pan and cover with sauce. Bake at 350 degrees until done, about 20-30 minutes. Serve with sauce.
