Mako Shark with Grilled Pineapple Salsa

1 medium ripe pineapple, trimmed, cored, quartered lengthwise and cut again lengthwise
Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
2 limes, juiced and lime halves reserved
1 small red onion, minced
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves finely chopped (about 1/2 cup leaves)
A couple pinches of sea salt

4 (8-ounce) center-cut mako shark fillets
Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
Black pepper to taste


Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly rub the pineapple pieces with olive oil. Grill on all sides, about 2 minutes per side or until lightly caramelized with nice char marks. Remove from grill and set aside to cool slightly.

Cut grilled pineapple into 1/2-inch cubes and add to a medium bowl. Add all remaining salsa ingredients, including the lime halves. These will lend the additional lime oils in the rinds to the mixture, making a more aromatic salsa. Set aside until ready to use.

While grill is still hot, rub each shark steak with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Place steaks on grill and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Gently turn fish so it does not fall apart. Once the fish has become opaque and firm to the touch, it is cooked through. Remove to a platter and spoon salsa over fish. Serve immediately.
