3 tbsp pineapple preserves
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp chopped fresh or 1/4 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 garlic clove minced
3/4 tsp salt, divided
4 sea bass filets (1" thick)
1/4 tsp black pepper
cooking spray (Pam)
Preheat broiler. Combine first 5 ingredients (pineapple - garlic) plus 1/4 tsp salt in a small bowl and set aside. Arrange filets on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle filets with ½ tsp salt and pepper. Broil filets for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and brush filets evenly with the pineapple mixture. Return filets to oven and broil for another 5 minutes or til the fish filets flake easily with a fork. Edges should be slightly charred.
