This slightly spicy but sweet sauce pairs perfectly with the wonderfully moist halibut to make a flavorful fish dinner. The Polynesian-inspired combination of pineapple, ginger, and soy sauce make a well-rounded glaze that beautifully coats the tender fish fillets and crunchy snow pea-bell pepper blend. Serve these fillets over steamed brown rice to capture the tasty sauce in every bite. Add some steamed broccoli for a full plate. Ready in about 30 minutes, this quick dinner is a great starter fish dish for children just starting to try new things.
