Prep Time:

Total Time:
25 mins


  • Zest and juice from 1 lime

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar or honey

  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

  • Salt and pepper

  • 8 ¼ -inch-thick pineapple rounds (from 1 pineapple)

  • 4 skinless fillets white flaky fish, such as tilapia or halibut (about 5 ounces each)

  • 1 cup couscous


  1. Heat broiler. Arrange pineapple rounds on a rimmed baking sheet in pairs, overlapping slightly, to form planks. Lay a fillet on each pineapple plank and season with salt and pepper. Broil until pineapple is browned at edges and fish is opaque throughout, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, cook couscous according to package instructions. Add lime zest and fluff with a fork. Stir together lime juice, oil, agave nectar, and jalapeno; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle fish and pineapple with lime dressing and serve with couscous.
