Shark with Pineapple Salsa

This was the first time we'd tried shark, and to be honest, we weren't all that impressed.  Quite an odd texture and not enough taste to make up for the oddness!  However, we tried Carpet Shark and probably each kind of shark is a little different.  This salsa would also go well with any firm white fish.  

Ingredients (serves 2):
1/2 ripe pineapple
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
Handful of finely chopped coriander
Handful of finely chopped mint
Salt and pepper 

2 shark fillets
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Salsa:  Rub the pineapple in oil and grill, bbq or fry until starting to crisp and brown (this helps the pineapple to unleash it's juices!).  Chop into small chunks and add to the other ingredients. 

Shark:  Rub the shark in oil and grill, bbq or fry until cooked through.  This may take longer than you think, particularly if the fillets are quite fat.  We ended up chopping our fillets into smaller pieces to help the cooking process.
