Spicy Pineapple Broth
2 fresh Thai red chili peppers
2 cups fresh pineapple juice

  1. Prepare Key Lime Cucumber Relish and set aside.

  6. Using the sauté pan from the fish, heat the second amount of olive oil. Add blanched sweet potatoes, salt and pepper and continue sautéing until potatoes are heated through.
  7. For Key Lime Cucumber Relish, combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
  8. Ladle ½ cup Spicy Pineapple broth in a bowl. Top with ¼ cup sweet potatoes and 1 fish fillet. Top fish with 3 tablespoons Key Lime Cucumber Relish.
