Any sturdy fish will work in this recipe: swordfish, trout or salmon would all make reasonable replacements. If you can get fresh pineapple, you’ll love the end result. Cut the slices thick.

Tip: Ripe pineapple is primarily yellow and smells obviously like pineapple even before cutting.


  • 1 lb. skinned tuna steak, quartered
  • 1 Tbsp. cajun seasoning blend
  • ½ Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 sweet snack peppers, roasted
  • ¼ cup mayo
  • ½ tsp. hot sauce
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • ¼ tsp. salt

  3. In a food processor, combine peppers, mayo, hot sauce, lime juice, and salt.
