Jerk Butter Fish with Pineapple Salsa

Bring on the spicy seafood and then pair it with some pineapple (pineapple salsa to be exact) and with that you've got a perfect marriage. I'm no jerk master and I do not claim to be. I always ensure when cooking foods by different cultures that people know I used their methods for inspiration and not claim that the recipe is authentic. That being said, everyone has different cooking styles, techniques etc and I use a lovely dry rub and searing method to make this fish dish that is both really healthy and tasty. Let's get to cooking foodies! Here's my recipe and I do hope you enjoy.



1 cup fresh Pineapple diced

(You can use canned as well it's up to you)

1/2 cup Sweet Pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup Red Onion, chopped

2 tsp chopped fresh Cilantro

1 small Jalapeno Pepper, finely chopped

1 clove Garlic, minced

4 tsp Lime juice

1 teaspoon white sugar

Pinch Red Pepper Flakes

Salt to taste


●Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Butter Fish

4 Butterfish Fillets

4 tbsp Chief Jerk Powder

2 tbsp Garlic Powder

1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

4 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp Salt


●Slice Fillets in half (optional)

●In a bowl mix Jerk powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper flakes.

●Rub seasoning into fillets well and let marinate for approx 10-15mins.

●Add oil to skillet on med heat, let oil heat up for a few mins before adding fish.

●Cook fillets for 3 min on each side.

●Remove from skillet and serve hot.
