Grilled snapper with charred pineapple salsa
Uncooked snapper fillet(s)
20 oz, four 5 oz pieces
1 medium, thinly sliced
Extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp, smoked variety
Canned pineapple rings in juice
14 oz, drained
Uncooked red onion(s)
½ small, diced
1 Tbsp, chopped
1 small, seeded and diced
1 item(s), juiced
- Lay out two large sheets of aluminum foil each large enough to completely wrap two fillets each. Cut two large sheets of parchment (each large enough to envelop two fillets) and place atop the aluminum foil.
- Divide the sliced zucchini between the two parchment sheets, and arrange in a single layer down the middle. Place two fillets on each zucchini layer; rub all four fillets with the olive oil and sprinkle with the smoked paprika, and season with salt and pepper.
- Lift the parchment paper on two opposite sides to meet in the middle above fish. Tightly fold down paper until it reaches fish, crimping to seal; roll up and crimp the ends to seal. (Be sure the paper is sealed snugly so that steam won’t escape during cooking.)
- Set one side of an outdoor grill to high. Once heated, place the fish parcels on the ‘off’ side of the grill to cook over indirect heat and grill the pineapple on the hot side of the grill until charred on both sides, approximately 1 minute per side.
- Remove pineapple and allow to cool; close the grill and allow the fish to cook for 10-12 minutes.
- Meanwhile chop the pineapple into ½ inch cubes. In a bowl, combine the grilled and chopped pineapple, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
- Once 10-12 minutes has elapsed, carefully remove the fish parcels from the grill. Carefully open the parcels, being mindful of the hot steam, and serve topped with the salsa.
- Serving size: 1 fillet and 1/4 of salsa
