Pineapple Habanero Tilapia

This is great during the work week. Between prep and cooking time, you can have a fabulous meal on your table, or couch (where we usually eat), in less than 20 minutes. I always have frozen fish on hand. I usually take the fish out of the freezer the night before and place in the refrigerator. Or, you can swing by your grocer and get it fresh.

Sprinkle lots of sea salt and ground pepper on the fish. Spritz the fish with the Misto. Turn oven to broil and place fish inside. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, or until fish is white and flaky.

Add a tablespoon to each piece of fish.

Steamfresh is a great brand for frozen vegetables and even brown rice. Quick and easy.

You know what else would make this fish perfect? Wailua Wheat Ale. But of course, any wheat beer will do.
