Sweet, tangy, crunchy, and refreshing – all words to describe this perfect summer meal. I love eating fish year round, but it seems particularly enjoyable during the summer. Fish is such a light dish, and I’m always excited about cooking out on the grill so I don’t have to heat up my house. To make my Pineapple Grilled Fish even better for me, I’m using Mazola® Corn Oil. A clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.

Grilled Fish on Pineapple Planks
- 1 fresh pineapple
- 4 fish filets
- 2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil
- Salt and pepper
I really wanted to use as many fresh ingredients as I could to cook my fish. I started by using fresh pineapple planks instead of cedar planks to grill my fish. Instead of a creamy herb rub, I made a fresh pineapple salsa topping. I also used Mazola® Corn Oil instead of butter.
Grilling on pineapple planks is simpler than it sounds. You’ll need a fresh pineapple and your choice on fresh fish. I chose tilapia because it’s a tender white fish with a mellow flavor, and it picks up the flavor on the pineapple really well. Cut the top and bottom off the pineapple and then slice vertically into planks. Super easy! Just make sure your pineapple is big enough for the fish filets you pick. I got 5 pineapple planks from my pineapple, which is perfect for my family of 5.
Lay each fish filet on top of a pineapple plank. Brush the fish with some Mazola Corn Oil and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mazola has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F and performs well in a variety of cooking applications. Many home cooks may not realize that all cooking oils have a smoke point that, once exceeded, not only negatively affect the food’s flavor and nutritional value. Place on the grill and cook until the fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. You want to grill your fish until they are flaky.
While your fish is grilling, you can put together your fresh pineapple salsa topping.
Fresh Pineapple Salsa
- 1 1/2 cup diced pineapple
- 1 small red pepper finely chopped
- 1 small orange pepper finely chopped
- 1/2 small red onion finely chopped
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil
- 1 medium jalapeño, chopped (optional)
- Toss all the ingredients together.
- Serve on top of the cooked fish.
Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy choice for your family. That makes it perfect for a variety of uses including baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing.
When the fish is done, remove the plans from the grill and top with your fresh pineapple salsa.
Mazola Corn Oil has a neutral taste that lets the natural flavor of your food stand out. Perfect for fresh summer flavors, including pineapple grilled fish!
