This recipe for fish tacos with pineapple salsa is from our popular Weight Management app. It is sure to become a summertime favourite – who knew taking care of yourself could be this simple and delicious?

We recommend you prepare the fish by pan-frying it at a low to medium temperature with a little extra virgin olive oil (anything above this heat with olive oil is dangerous as it promotes formation of cancer-causing chemicals).

  • Yields: 1 Serving


6 oz. piece of halibut or black cod

1 large piece butter leaf lettuce

¼ avocado, diced

Cilantro for serving

Sea salt and pepper

Pineapple Salsa

1 pineapple, peeled, cored and diced small

1 jalapeño pepper, minced

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1 tbsp ginger, grated

½ cup red onion, finely chopped

4 - 5 mint leaves, chopped

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Juice of one lemon

Juice and zest of one lime

½ cup cilantro, roughly chopped

Sea salt and pepper


1Season the halibut with sea salt and pepper. Pan fry for 3 minutes a side with a little olive oil. Add the cooked fish to a large lettuce leaf and top with pineapple salsa and avocado, then the cilantro.
