My mother shared this recipe with me several years ago. I've found that even my friends who aren't fond of fish enjoy this particular dish and find themselves taking seconds.


  • 4 to 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 pound halibut or swordfish fillet, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup green pepper chunks (1 inch)
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion chunks (1 inch)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the vinegar, water, soy sauce and hot pepper sauce until smooth; set aside.
  2. In a small resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add fish and shake to coat. In a small skillet, saute fish in oil for 4-6 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork; remove and keep warm.
  3. In same skillet, saute green pepper and onion for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add pineapple. Stir sauce and add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return fish to skillet; heat through. Serve with rice.
