1 teaspoon jerk seasoning rub
1 Tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
Half of a small fresh pineapple, cut lengthwise OR 4 slices canned, drained pineapple rings, cut in half

Recipe from Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute


1.Rinse any ice glaze 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.
2.Turn fillets over and cover pan tightly. Cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes for frozen Alaska Pollock or 2 to 3 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
3.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.
4.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.
