Step 1

In a bowl, marinate the fish in the pineapple juice for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
In another bowl, combine the pineapple, bell pepper, 60 ml (1/4 cup) basil, chives, oil, vinegar and ginger. Add the vermicelli and blend well. Season with salt and pepper.
Drain the fish. In a very hot and lightly oiled ridged skillet, grill the fish on both sides. Season with salt and pepper.
