READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by BoxOWine

A caribbean inspired recipe that goes well with either tuna or swordfish steaks. Perfect for the grill too. Serve with an island style rice pilaf. Prep time does not include marinating time.

This recipe was wonderful I tried it with pork and it blew me away with the mixture of pineapple and the citrus acid thats included. I have to say this is one of my all time favorite ways to use pineapples.
