Sweet Chile Pineapple Fish
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
4 frozen fish fillets (such as salmon, snapper, or halibut; 1 1/2 lb)
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons low-sodium teriyaki sauce
1 (8-oz) can crushed pineapple (undrained)
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons pineapple preserves
3 tablespoons Asian sweet chile sauce
-- Slice green onions.
1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Coat both sides of fish with cooking spray, then add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on the first side. Turn fish and cover; cook 4 more minutes. Whisk together 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, pineapple, and water. (Temperature of fish should be about 125°F.)
2. Pour sauce over fish, then cover; cook 2 more minutes to develop flavor. Stir together pineapple preserves, chile sauce, and remaining 2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce.
3. Spoon sauce evenly over fish, then cover and turn heat off; let fish stand 1-2 minutes or until 145°F (or fish separates easily). Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
