DIRECTIONS

  • Cook garlic and shallots in 2 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add chiles and pineapple, then sauté over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until pineapple is softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add fish sauce, sugar, and salt and sauté sambal, stirring, 30 seconds.
  • Cool to room temperature, then stir in cilantro.
  • Brush fish all over with remaining tablespoon oil, then season with salt.
  • Grill, skin sides down, on lightly oiled grill rack, until skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Turn fish over and grill until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes more.
  • Serve fish with sambal.
  • I have grilled these indoors using a grill pan with good results.
