1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 pounds skinless yellow-eye rockfish fillets -- cut in 6 strips
3 Cup peanut oil for cooking
1 medium fresh lime wedges -- for garnish
1 bunch fresh cilantro sprigs -- for garnish
2 tablespoons red pepper -- finely diced
1 cup fresh pineapple -- 1/4 inch dice
1/2 teaspoon orange zest -- finely grated
1 medium orange -- peeled, 1/4 inch dice
2 tablespoons cilantro -- chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon red onion -- finely diced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger root -- minced

Preparation / Directions:

Pineapple Salsa: In a medium, non-reactive bowl mix all the salsa ingredients together well. Marinade: In a saucepan combine the marinade ingredients. Bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat, then remove pan from heat. Chill marinade well before using. 1. Place fish pieces in a glass baking dish and pour chilled marinade over fish. Cover and refrigerate for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. 2. Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little peanut oil. Remove fish from marinade, shake off excess marinade and place fish in hot pan. Sear fillets on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the fish is nicely seared on each side, cooking more or less, depending on the thickness of the fish. 3. Remove fish to individual plates and top with Pineapple Salsa. 4. Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs. Chef's notes: Yellow-eye are sometimes referred to as yellow-eye snapper, but actually they are a member of the rockfish family. Any type of rockfish can be substituted for the yellow-eye. Salmon is also delicious marinated in teriyaki and grilled. The marinade can be made and kept refrigerated for up to two weeks
